South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Dillon County Photos  |  Page’s Millpond

Page’s Millpond offers a majestic look at the rustic past and simple country scenery found in Dillon County. Its millhouse was built in 1935 to replace the 1792 original built by Major William Ford.

In 1870 Joseph Nichols Page purchased the property and renamed the cypress pond. Subsequently, the community was called Page’s Mill until 1916, when residents elected to call it Lake View.

Reflections on Page’s Millpond


Photographer Joan Beth Page, who captured the wintry scene above, writes, “This is a rare photograph for our little town because we hardly ever get snow or an ice storm. The millhouse is also featured in the book America 24-7.” The book features the photo seen at the top of the page, taken by SCIWAY contributor and professional photographer Benton Henry of Latta.

What an absolutely delightful pond. So uniquely beautiful. Sometimes I travel off the main roads, and I came upon this lovely area by happenstance when traveling through S.C. Stopping at the tables for a break, it was perfectly restful for both me and my dog. Great photo area.
