Sconyers Bar-B-Que was founded in 1956. When Claude and Adeline Sconyers could no longer make a living at farming they decided to give their hobby a try. With their children grown and no one to help them on the farm, they opened Sconyers Bar-B-Que on Peach Orchard Road. The small restaurant became popular with the locals. Many in Augusta would come and enjoy pork bar-b-que and hash cooked to perfection.
