Visit The Friendliest Town In South Carolina The Next Time You Need A Pick-Me-Up

The town of Summerville’s motto is “The Flower Town in the Pines.” For fans of flowers and delightful places to admire them, this is the town for you. But when considering its history, it will warm your heart to know that like the flowers, the friendliest people can come from despair and destruction. Among other hurdles, and while recuperating from the War Between the States, the 1886 earthquake brought great damage, followed by a downtown fire destroying most of the buildings around the town square. Then the International Congress of Physicians in Paris, France brought a silver lining, believing in the healing qualities of the pine trees’ scent. The Congress declared Summerville one of the two best locations in the world for the treatment and recovery of lung disorders.

As one can see, the friendliest town of Summerville has so much to offer. And just like in the old days, the trees are still there offering their beauty and shade. Take a trip down South and enjoy the experience — you’ll be glad you did.
