A guest testimonial appearing in an 1893 booklet advertising the Pine Forest Inn in Summerville, SC.  The text reads, “What do I think of Summerville? I think it is the earthly paradise. I shall never forget its balmy, life-giving air, and the lovely drives through its pine woods, which I am always hoping to take over again. I recall, with a sigh of longing, spring days or winter days that seemed like spring, when I have driven for hours through those balm-breathing forests, never quite ready to turn back and go indoors again. I can think of nothing that would be pleasanter than to repeat these experiences. As a question of health the place has done so much good to certain invalids I, myself know, that I could hardly speak of it too strongly from that point of view.” Louise Chandler Moulton.  Part of the Lowcountry Tourism collection
