Much of South Carolina's history can be traced through its rivers, many of which were named for the Indian tribes that first inhabited their banks.
Later, European settlers used the waterways as paths of exploration and transportation. They mined the riverbottoms for iron and gold and built mills and plantations along the banks.
Today, South Carolina's rivers are an integral part of a complex ecosystem and provide us with numerous recreational opportunities, including favorite Palmetto State pastimes like boating and fishing.
