Today I went to Society Hill, SC founded in 1726.
Although I went there almost every day for a couple years when I was working at the library there; I never thought much about that date. After being in New Hampshire and seeing the towns there brag about their founding dates which were much later I am newly impressed with Society Hill's early start.
My buddy, Mr. Ashton Gandy had invited me to come see the family quilts he had stored in a cedar chest in his house. He only knew they had been made by his father's family. Mr. G is 92 so I know they are old.
It was truly wonderful for me to see this building FINALLY come into reality after MANY, MANY delays!
