The East Russell Street Historic District is a basically intact residential neighborhood with a wide range of architectural types (including Victorian, Colonial Revival, and Bungalow) and socio-economic levels within a small area. The district is a collection of substantial one- and two-story brick and frame houses, and a number of modest one-story frame houses. The houses were constructed between ca. 1850 and ca. 1930, with the majority being built between ca. 1890 and ca. 1925. The district contains approximately fifty-five contributing resources. The pattern of neighborhood growth in the district is typical of the Orangeburg’s residential areas, with the more affluent white citizens building larger houses along the primary streets, and less affluent African Americans living in close proximity, in more modest houses along the side streets. The African American residents of this neighborhood generally worked in a service capacity; they were laundresses, drivers, and house servants. Listed in the National Register September 20, 1985.
