The Remnants Of The Abandoned Kings Highway In South Carolina Are Hauntingly Beautiful
Abandoned places are fascinating, especially when left to the elements to decay naturally. We’ve written about the oldest highway in America, the Kings Highway, and how it began in Charleston and ran all the way to Boston. You can read all about the highway here. You can even drive on parts of the very same route that was carved into the landscape if you travel from Charleston to Myrtle Beach.
Surprisingly, large portions of the original Kings Highway are still being used between Charleston and Boston. This means if you’re traveling on Highway 17 between Charleston and the North Carolina state line, then you’re probably traveling on much of the same route as did the Colonials!
