This Confederate Monument stands in front of the McCormick County Courthouse. The inscription reads:

IN HONOR OF
THIS MONUMENT PERPETUATES
THE MEMORY OF THOSE WHO,
TRUE TO THE INSTINCTS OF
THEIR BIRTH, FAITHFUL TO THE
TEACHINGS OF THEIR FATHERS,
CONSTANT IN THEIR LOVE FOR
THE SOUTH, OFFERED THEIR
LIVES AND FORTUNES IN THE
PERFORMANCE OF THEIR DUTY.
It's not real easy to find a place that caters to ladies' lunches and teas. The McCray House has a wonderful variety of teas to enjoy. They are open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 5PM. The last Saturday of the month a dinner is offered, which varies from month to month.
The menu has a choice of bisque soups, salads and sandwiches. Special coffees are also offered. The day I was there I had a combo mushroom bisque and half a chicken croissant sandwich with chips and a bit of fruit.
The food is served on matching china and the table cloth and napkins are cloth.
The dining room has a beautiful exposed beam ceiling with hardwood floors and several nice pieces of furniture with things to look at or purchase. Very inviting ambiance.
The McCray House also offers private parties and teas.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the chicken salad on croissant.
