Few People Know Author Pat Conroy Is Buried In This Modest Location In South Carolina

Even though Pat Conroy was born in nearby Atlanta, Georgia, South Carolinians adopted the author as a son of our own after he moved to Beaufort in his teen years and finished high school there. Conroy’s writing career included many beloved titles that featured South Carolina locales, experiences, and story lines. He is probably one of the most cherished writers of recent generations and holds a special place in the hearts of many South Carolina residents.
