Most People Don’t Know The Story Behind The South Carolina Ghost Town That Never Died
Most people think of a ghost town as being completely abandoned with no signs of life. But that’s not always the case. The state’s milling history left scores of towns scattered around the state nearly dried up after the price of cotton plummeted in the 1920s ahead of the Great Depression. Many of those towns never recovered from the blow to their manufacturing jobs and to the farms that grew the cotton.
