Bolan Hall Landing

Reader Maureen in New York is doing some research for some folks up that way that have some roots down this way. She’s looking for a Cemetery at Bolan Hall.

We’ve never gone to the end of the road that takes us to the landing, but, on this day, there’s time and it feels like the thing to do.

At the end of the road, there’s an entrance to the Bolan Hall Plantation. Now, this might be where the cemetery is located, but it seems best not to drive down someone’s driveway unannounced. Perhaps a phone call is in order.

In the meantime, PHOTOS!

Sugar spotted a plantation house along the creek.

Sugar looked over the rail and spotted something. He’s a good spotter. I didn’t see what he saw.

He directed me slightly to one side, and I increased the zoom on the camera.

Footprints! Perhaps a great blue heron and a raccoon.

What a beautiful afternoon for a stroll along the walkway.

    Hey Ruth and all.I have been researching a plantation on the Ashley River known as Cedar Grove. During the Civil War it was anaged by a “Mr. and Mrs. Lawton”. I am trying to find and share any info on this couple. Cedar Grove was owned by the Vardells at this time and was caught in a forest fire. My email is Charlestonmazyck @ yahoo.com. Thanks, Cam.

      Hello Cam! I’ve searched the resources that I have available & find nothing on Cedar Grove or your Lawtons! Can you tell us more about where you got your information?
