The Central Savannah River Area is famous for the sand hills that frame both sides of the great river dividing South Carolina and Georgia. Professor and journalist Dr. Tom Mack presents his favorite places in this storied region, from the grand architectural remnants of Aiken's winter colony to Woodrow Wilson's boyhood home in Augusta. Explore Edgefield, where the cemeteries are storytellers; Columbia, where Robert Mills- America s first homegrown architect- once plied his trade; and Abbeville, where the last meeting of the Confederate cabinet was held. Discover the secrets of Barnwell's famous sundial and learn which world-renowned pianist once called Aiken home. Visit plantations, museums, monuments and much more in this delightful collection of columns that first appeared in the Aiken Standard.
