Nature Is Reclaiming This One Abandoned South Carolina Spot And It’s Actually Amazing

South Carolina has a treasure trove of abandoned mills. Some are in dismal and dangerous conditions surrounded by tall fencing for protection. Others, like the Saluda River Factory in Columbia, are slowly and silently being reclaimed by nature.

The Saluda River Factory in Columbia is also known as the Saluda Mill. But in reality, during its short existence this factory had five different owners, four of them were prior to the Civil War, and each one called the factory by a different name.

Would you ever take a day trip in South Carolina to see these or other factory ruins? Tell us in the comments below or on our Facebook page.
