Orangeburg County Jail - Orangeburg, SC

The Orangeburg County Jail, also called the Pink Palace, is located in Orangeburg, South Carolina.  This historic jail's unique story begins at its construction in 1860. During the war, General Sherman led the Federal Army in burning this facility in 1860; however, the building did not suffer enough damage to be demolished. Ultimately the building was restored in 1867 and remains intact to this very day. The building is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Pauly Jail Building Company constructed the cells that are still currently standing in this historic facility. Below are photos of these original cells as well as the jail's plaque regarding the timeline of events that affected this jail.
