Laurens, SC

The historic National Humane Alliance Fountain given to Laurens, SC has a new home in a new park in town. Located in the city's historic district, the Back Street Park was created in 2014 at the corner of East Main Street and Highway 221 after an abandoned building was removed from the site. The formal dedication of the new park took place in November, 2020. The park was dedicated to the black owned businesses in the area and the fountain was added to the new park.
