The Forgotten South Carolina Gravesite That No One Ever Visits
South Carolina’s history celebrates both life and death. From war heroes who fought battles for our freedom to persons famously public for other reasons, we have a strong conviction for memorializing our dearly departed in the Palmetto State. But there’s one little grave that’s all too often passed by without notice.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.

And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
