The Sandhills

 

Blanche Fowles Howard, my late mother, and her family are from Columbia, South Carolina.  Like many families down that way, they go way back.  My first cousin and her family live today in a home built by our ancestors, circa 1820.  This home, known as the "Sandhills," is pictured above, and was once the summer house to the main house known as the "The Raft."  The Raft was on the West Bank of the Congaree River, just north of confluence with the Wateree River, in Richland County, S.C.  The Raft was destroyed in the Civil War.
