Charleston, South Carolina Historic District
Photo from East Battery Walkway, Charleston Harbor. Looking at Charlston Harbor with Fort Sumter in the background. History provides us with defining moments from which we judge where we are with where we have been. The Civil War provides the United States with one of its critical defining moments that continues to play a vital role in defining ourselves as a Nation. Fort Sumter is the place where it began. On April 10, 1861, Brig. Gen. Beauregard, in command of the provisional Confederate forces at Charleston, South Carolina, demanded the surrender of the Union garrison of Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. Garrison commander Anderson refused. On April 12, Confederate batteries opened fire on the fort.

Few roads in the United States possess the history, scenic qualities, and cultural resources of such stature in such a compact area.

In the early 20th century, this road was recognized as one of the first scenic automobile touring routes.

Colleton County, South Carolina
Northern County line. The Carolina territory was established in 1663 when the King of England granted land to eight English noblemen. This land grant stretched from ocean to ocean. The territory was divided into three counties as early as 1682, making Colleton one of the oldest counties in the country. Walterboro was established as a summer colony in 1784 so Plantation owners could escape the malaria brought on during the summer months along the banks of the rivers and marshes of the Lowcountry. The Plantations produced rice, indigo and, later, cotton. Rice remained a major product of Colleton County's plantations until the early 1900s.

In the Lowcountry, history is honored in the rituals of daily life, woven into the taste of oyster creations accented with African spices or sweet potato chips served hot in a sweetgrass basket.

Northern County Line. Shortly after the English settled Carolina, during the times of the Lords Proprietors, the area which now encompasses Jasper County was designated as part of Granville County. This included the 'Indian Lands' stretching from the Combahee River to the Savannah River. Legend has it that the first courthouse and jail in Granville County consisted of a log building near a causeway across the Black Swamp, a tributary of the Savannah River along the banks of which lived the Pallachuccola tribe. Remnants of an old fort named for the tribe can still be seen in the swamp today.
