St. Matthews Sunflowers – Calhoun County, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Calhoun County Photos  |  St. Matthews Sunflowers

The small town of St. Matthews was originally called Lewisville, in honor of Colonel Lewis, a distinguished land owner living in the area. Lewisville eventually became St. Matthews, in honor of the old St. Matthew’s Parish which eventually became Calhoun County.

When Calhoun County was established, the county attorney accidentally left the apostrophe in “St. Matthew’s” out of the bill. From that point forward, the town name has officially been “St. Matthews” – without an apostrophe.

I would love to come see and take photos of the sunflower fields in St. Matthews…can you email me when they are in full bloom and where they are? We live in Summerville and love to take “road trips”. Thank you in advance.
