You Probably Didn’t Know These 15 Inventions Came From South Carolina

Plato once said that necessity is the mother of invention. I have to say that no truer statement has ever been made and although South Carolina can’t lay claim to light bulbs or water wheels, I can say that we invented some pretty amazing, life-altering inventions.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

See? I told you that South Carolina was home to some truly gifted innovators! And, I’m sure it won’t stop here. Everyday someone is looking at something and thinking to themselves that it can be better or they are doing a chore that they believe they can make easier by inventing a simple machine. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings for “we are the music-makers and we are the dreamers of dreams”.
