Happy July 4th South Carolina!

In celebration of our country's independence, we bring you this patriotic shot from the lovely small town of Adams Run. We also feature links to great July events going on in our state, including ways you can enjoy some fireworks and fun for the fourth!

Scenic and rural, Adams Run is also rich in history. Originally called Adamsville, the area is home to several historic plantations including Grove Plantation, Summit Plantation, and Willtown Bluff Plantation. The lovely Christ Church, located just a few hundred yards from this post office, was organized in 1835.

SCIWAY thanks Charleston photographer Vanessa Kauffmann for sharing this beautiful picture. Submit your SC pictures to SCIWAY and the next photo of the month could be yours!
