The Big One

On a single terrifying night of August 1893 a devastating hurricane ripped through the islands and lowlands of South Carolina and Georgia drowning thousands and leaving tens of thousands more destitute.  

Grace Cordial, Beaufort District Collection Manager, will share photographs, diary accounts, and other materials relating to the “Great Sea Island Hurricane” during the presentation.   

This free BDC@ STH local history program will be held in the Meeting Room at St. Helena Branch Library, 6355 Jonathan Francis Sr. Road. Site contact: acox@bcgov.net, 255-6559.
