postcard photo of the orr monumentThe Orr monument celebrates the life of James Lawrence Orr. This monument, made of rose quartz, was knocked over by a storm. It was then relocated to the Anderson County Museum. The top of the monument looks broken, but it was designed that way on purpose to represent “a life cut short.”
