The Palmetto State is full of secret little attractions that few people know about. For instance, there’s an historic gold mine hiding in South Carolina. In fact, it’s so well hidden that trying to find an address for it on the Internet is a bit like panning for gold itself. But we scored the address – and some photos. Check it out below.
