Description/Standards Tabs


Water power was an important resource for early industry in South Carolina. This mill south of Columbia created a mill pond where the state fair grounds are now located. The presence of the mill and the pond prevented southward growth of Columbia into the 20th century. Bluff Road was the dam to the pond.
