  3. Hello – I just stumble upon your website.
    As I was working on my genealogy I noticed that Sarah Merritt
    Lived in Merrittsville, SC born about 1780.
    Looking forward to wandering around your site to see if she is apart of the city name.

  4. Mr. Tom.
    In your readings and research have you come across the Wildwood Park. Every map that I have seen the even shows the Park, show it down under North Saluda Reservoir. But in one article, seems it is was up on the west side of Hogback Mtn. below the WSPA tower. It also mentions the “Winds” section of the trail also above Wildwood Park. I know of a resort up on the Hogback location, but never got a name for it or the exact location. Is that the Wildwood Park? Thank you sir. Hope you are all doing well.

    1. Tripp, I did come across the name, but there wasn’t that much information about the park. I’ll have to see if I can find those notes.

  5. From what I’ve read, Wildwood Park was a resort for the Woodside Mill employees in the 1920’s. I’m sure that the swimming pool outline is is there and could even swear that I saw video of the it on PBS years ago.
