In this segment, Joanna Angle discusses the historic forests and state parks found in McCormick County: 1,000 acres of John de la Howe’s own land, which now serves as a scientific and educational laboratory, Hamilton Branch State Park, and Hickory Knob State Park. These three state parks all overlook Thurmond Lake, one of the largest in-land bodies of water in the south.
