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.
