The old Back Country Road – the second oldest road in South Carolina – along which the visitor to Poinsett Park must travel to reach his destination, was once lined with finest plantation homes. It is our hope that this glimpse into the past, along the road that traverses the High Hills of Santee, may add to the pleasure of those who go for an outing at Poinsett Park.
