Almost Nobody Knows That Parts Of The Iconic Movie, The Patriot, Were Filmed In This Tiny South Carolina Town
The United States is the top place in the world chosen for movie settings, and there have been some great movies filmed in South Carolina, whether only in certain scenes or in their entirety. The Patriot movie was filmed completely in South Carolina with a variety of locations selected for different scenes, some perhaps surprising, such as the tiny town of Lowrys.
There was plenty of controversy surrounding the historical accuracy of The Patriot, but its story was fictional. And it’s interesting to note that the film’s director, Roland Emmerich, and his team consulted with experts at the Smithsonian Institution on set, props, and costumes, and its screenwriter, Robert Rodat, read through many journals and letters of colonists while preparing to write the screenplay.

South Carolina has been home for AnneMarie since 2001. Her favorite part of the state is Lake Jocassee. An App State alumna, it's always the mountains; the lake bonus makes it heavenly. When not writing about the state, she may be spending time with family, relaxing by the pool, or out somewhere enjoying nature.
