Overview


Walterboro is a city of beautiful, living memories, with Old South plantations dotting its surrounding countrysides and peaceful scenes graced by Spanish moss swaying gently from hundred-year-old live oak trees. Established as a summer haven for rice planters from lower Colleton County in 1784, Walterboro served a similar purpose from the 1920s to the 1950s, when it was "The Place" to stop for anxious vacationers making the trek from New York to Florida. Around Walterboro hopes to recapture those earlier days when Walterboro's main commercial ingredients were made up of family-owned businesses located along two-lane highways instead of today's chain motels and fast food restaurants stationed along the exits on expressways. This volume allows the reader to walk down dusty, shady country roads, examine the exteriors and explore the interiors of some of Colleton County's most historic buildings, and stroll along the avenues of downtown Walterboro and the beaches of Edisto Island.
