Overview

Before radar, depth finders and satellite-guided navigation, long before the seafloor was charted with scientific precision, mariners relied on lighthouses to approach a coastline safely. South Carolina’s history with lighthouses goes back nearly two and a half centuries. At Cape Romain, a windmill was converted into a lighthouse. St. Philip’s Church in Charleston was converted into a beacon for seafarers to aid navigation to the Holy City. With such a long and storied past, the story of South Carolina’s lighthouses is inseparable from its maritime history. Join author John Hairr as he recounts the fascinating history of these beacons that have shone above the shores of the Palmetto State.

    An amazing look at the South Carolina's lighthouses. This is the best documented treatment I have ever seen about South Carolina's lighthouse history. A thoroughly researched book, with stories not just about lighthouses, but shipwrecks, maritime disasters, earthquakes, and lots of other events. Who knew that there was a large windmill at Cape Romain?
