Forgotten South Carolina: These 16 Abandoned Places Are Being Reclaimed By Nature

South Carolina lays claim to many abandoned structures. People move on and leave behind all sorts of things and when no one else is there to claim it then the land is happy to have it back. Slowly, but surely it takes chunks here and bits there. Before you know it, you are taking pictures of mere skeletons of what once was, but don’t blink because if you do they are gone completely.

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:

Sadly, so many of these buildings exist in South Carolina, but not for long. Neither time nor nature discriminates and they both will take back what belongs to them little by little. The photographers are the keepers here as they go out and discover these places and hold their memories for all to see.

I want to thank all of the photographers who have shared their work for the world to see. You make the memories for us when time steals them away. A sincere thank you for your artistry. And to all of you, my friends, I bid you happy hunting for your own abandoned buildings. If you have a great photograph you would like to share, please put it in the comments below. Until next time…
