The Orangeburg Downtown Historic District is significant as a very intact collection of resources which were important in the commercial, industrial, architectural, governmental and social history of Orangeburg during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A majority of the buildings in the district were built between ca. 1883 and ca. 1925 when Orangeburg underwent tremendous growth. The district is a collection of forty-four buildings and one structure and consists of store buildings, Orangeburg’s first textile mill, a livery stable, a statue, two churches, a post office, two lodge halls, and a brick paved street. Buildings in the district are constructed mainly of brick and display various architectural characteristics of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including Romanesque Revival, Victorian, and Neo-Classical. Listed in the National Register September 20, 1985.
