“A collection of historic sites and properties that no longer stand but have not been forgotten.”
S.C.’s counties abound with historic treasures and abandoned places worthy of discovery. Roots and Recall is delighted to preserve their history; delivering them on some 32,000 pages. We have selected a number of local sites which are gone. Some burned but most were destroyed by simple lack of interest in historic preservation. Enjoy perusing what once was here! Remember just click on the highlighted name!
