Beneath the many trees and leaves of South Carolina are places yet to be seen by passing visitors and locals. South Carolina was once home to pivotal battles, rebels, and textile mills.
Thanks to cotton plantations and mills, South Carolina thrived. Buildings with histories that were once key to the health and function of the state are now lost to time and Earth's foliage.
With growing cities and towns, South Carolina leaves its history ever so slowly. As people turn a blind eye to these homes, hospitals, and factories, they build new ones that stand by the old. Remnants of time await their end.
In Abandoned South Carolina: Forgotten Upstate, explore the state sanitarium that served as a tuberculosis hospital, textile mills that stand to rot, rich family homes now filled with spirits of a sad past, and even a missile plant now home to local wildlife. As the people of this state move forward, we must look to the past and learn from it to better our future.
