Edisto Island Mystery Tree – Charleston, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Charleston County Photos | Edisto Island Mystery Tree
This “mystery” tree stands about 100 feet off SC 174 on Edisto Island. Though no one is quite sure who adorns it, the decorations change with the seasons and the tree has become a popular local landmark.
Rusty Williamson of North Charleston captured the picture above of the mystery tree in August 2008. He writes, “This picture shows the summer theme which includes an American flag, buckets for playing in the sand, and a beach chair.”
If you continue further down the road towards the beach, you will come across another mysterious tree. On your right stands a large old oak with a unique swing hanging from its boughs. The swing is made from a stack of old mattresses. As one mattress disintegrates, a new one is added on top of it.
SCIWAY thanks Pam Oerman of North Augusta for submitting this picture she took in July 2009.
