The History Behind This Small Town Hotel In South Carolina Is Both Eerie And Fascinating
There is a grand old hotel in Abbeville that has quite the storied history. It has risen from the dead on at least three occasions, undergone restorations and renovations – and then more restorations – and is now 115 years old. In the midst of it all, what was formerly call the Eureka Hotel has managed to wind up a thriving, historic inn listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
