Page’s Millpond – Lake View, South Carolina
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.
The pond features 238 acres highlighted with cypress trees and a beautiful spillway. Fishing is allowed only by membership, but photographs are allowed from the shore.
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.
