Granite Step – Ridgeway, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Fairfield County Photos | Granite Step
The granite stone featured in this image was likely quarried in a local Fairfield County mine. This well-preserved example of a stepping stone – called a “mounting block” – was used to assist ladies in entering a horse-drawn carriage or buggy. Victorian-era dresses were long and cumbersome, making the ascent somewhat indelicate. The mounting block is located on the back lawn of the Robert Charleton Thomas house.

Granite Step Add Info and More Photos
The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Granite Step, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
