Just the facts, ma'am
Heriot St., Charleston, SC
For all the backroad sights I look for, I happened on a Roadside America listing right here our own backyard. This one is mentioned on Roadside America and I tracked it down this morning. An old cypress tree stood at Grayson S. Carter's lumber business in the 1930s on this land. The "tree" is now a branchless center trunk on a concrete slab, with an embedded wisdom plaque.
