Ridgeland Town Clock – Ridgeland, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Jasper County Photos | Ridgeland Town Clock
The Charleston and Savannah Railroad was completed in the mid 1800s, and a train depot was established in the Ridgeland area. The town was originally called Gopher Hill because of abundance of the gopher tortoises in the area. However, many people felt that Gopher Hill was not an appropriate name for such a popular train depot. The town was renamed Ridgeland, because the depot was built on the highest ridge between Charleston and Savannah.
