Historia

Founded on a property donated by Clare Boothe Luce, American Ambassador to Rome. The property is located about 40 km from Charleston, in the Cooper river valley. The soil is fertile and suitable for many crops. Much of the land is forested. The climate is ideal for 10 months of the year, the other two months being humid.
1948: 29 pioneers arrive from Gethsemani to take possession of the property on 22 November.Gethsemani
