Legareville | History of SC Slide Collection

Legareville was a summer resort community of the early 19th century, where planters and their families could retreat from the heat and disease of their plantations and enjoy cooling breezes. This 1919 topographical map shows how sparsely populated the area was, even 100 years later. Each small black square on the map represents one building within this approximately 6 square mile area.
