This route follows an old Indian trail, which became a trading path and later, in 1747, a public road from Charleston to Granby and points west. The State Road laid out by the newly established Board of Public Works in 1820 from Charleston to Columbia and on to the mountains perpetuated one of the oldest and most traveled routes in the development of the South Carolina back country.

Erected by West Columbia-Cayce Junior Woman´s Club - 1965
