Most People Don’t Know About This Crater From A Nuclear Bomb In South Carolina

March 11, 2022 will mark 64 years since nine-year-old Frances and six-year-old Helen Gregg of Florence, South Carolina, and their nine-year-old cousin Ellen Davies were playing approximately 60 yards from the special playhouse that had been built for them near the woods behind their house. Out of nowhere, an atomic bomb dropped on that playhouse. While most of the state has pushed the memory of this nuclear bomb in South Carolina out of mind, the spot where it happened remains a bizarre roadside attraction that’s a sobering reminder or the near loss of many lives from that day.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
