We went out for a drive yesterday. That’s gotten to be a rarer occasion with the current level of gas prices, but it is nice to get out, check out a few places, take a few photographs, and well… just get out of the house for a while every so often.
We were heading in the Moncks Corner direction to meet up with a group of folks that were having a reunion, but the dates got screwed up, so that didn’t happen.
Anyway, we ended up in Pineville. Why? It’s where the car took us. You know, point the thing and see where you end up!
Pineville was a thriving village of around 100 buildings or so until the Union troops set fire to most of it in 1865. After that much of the land was turned over to growing crops, and there’s not a lot left. We did get a picture of the original chapel though, and also the Day Dawn Baptist church which struck me as a rather fine imposing building.
