This cypress snag (a snag refers to a dead or dying tree) standing in the Sampit River can be seen from Morgan Park, one of Georgetown‘s treasures. The park was the vision of William Doyle Morgan, who served as mayor of Georgetown from 1891 through 1906. Among Mayor Morgan’s accomplishments were the planting of 300 live oak trees (Quercus virginiana) in the downtown area and the founding of the Bank of Georgetown. He also brought modern industries to the city, including the Atlantic Coast Lumber Company. He also created Morgan Park in 1893, named for him by the citizens of Georgetown.

Features of the 10-acre park include remnants of Fort Winyah, built for the War of 1812, a boardwalk through a maritime forest, a picnic shelter, and a mile of shoreline along the river for strolling at low tide. While the shops of historic Front Street are a beautiful way to spend a day in Georgetown, make sure to schedule some time in scenic and natural Morgan Park. (Morgan Park is just beyond East Bay Park, another popular Georgetown park.)
