Few People Realize There’s An Active Volcano Right Here In South Carolina

Volcanic activity and South Carolina? There must be some kind of mix up because those two terms aren’t commonly used in the same sentence. But the volcanic history of South Carolina seems to be very real, according to this report we downloaded from the National Park Service. Kings Mountain National Military Park in Blacksburg, South Carolina is included an “arc” of active volcanoes that still exist and are completely accessible for public exploration.

But don’t worry, the volcanoes aren’t still “active” in the scientific sense, meaning you won’t have to worry about stepping in hot lava while you explore.
