Nelson's Ferry

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“About forty miles northwest of Charleston, near the line between Charleston and Orangeburg counties, are some wonderful springs. The water boils up from the ground, clear and pure. It is a subterranean river that appears upon the surface, and that winds through the lowlands northwest for about two miles, and empties into the Santee at Nelson’s Ferry."—Coffin, 1879


Coffin, Charles Carelton The Boys of '76 (Franklin Square, NY: Harper & Brothers, 1879)
