The Confederate Home
60-64 Broad Street
This building’s Victorian façade conceals a double tenement built in 1800. First operated as the Carolina Hotel, it was rented in 1867 as the Home for the Mothers, Widows and Daughters of Confederate Soldiers, also known as the Confederate Home. The building also housed the Confederate College, a school for young women, until the early 1920s. The building was damaged in the 1886 earthquake and repaired with donations sent in from all over the country.

Canoe on Turtle Island
near Daufuskie Island, SC
A dugout canoe that may date back to the 18th century has been recovered on Turtle Island, a small island south of Daufuskie Island by University of South Carolina archaeologists and residents of the sea island. The canoe, hewn from a single log, was discovered this summer by Daufuskie Island resident John Hill on Turtle Island, an area named for the sea turtles that nest there. It was partially protruding from the marsh grass in which it was buried. “The visible end suggested it was hewn by iron tools,” said Jim Spirek, the state underwater archaeologist with USC’s S.C. Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology (SCIAA). “Whether it was built by historic-period Native American Indians influenced by European designs or by Colonial settlers or from a later period is open for speculation at this point.”
