Can You Imagine Summerville 169 Years Ago?

Celebrate the town's birthday with its historians, Barbara Hill and Ed West. You will learn about its early history, including the sawmills, railroads, malaria, churches, people and plantations, and more. This event is free.

Hill is the author of "Summerville: 1847-1997; Our History: A Sesquicentennial Edition of the History of the Flower Town in the Pines." The book with updates will be reprinted in early 2017. West, the historian at the Summerville-Dorchester Museum, shares a lifelong interest in Dorchester County history. Call the museum at 843-875-9666 for more information.
