Looking for Dinosaurs?

No, this is not a fossil hunt.  On the grounds of the Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington estate, Brookgreen Gardens, the staff uncovered the remains of the overseer's house.  This area of South Carolina was known for growing "Carolina Gold" rice and slaves were used to plant and harvest the crop.  In the mid to late 1700's, Charleston, a town south of Myrtle Beach, was the richest town in the United States because of rice.
