MYSTERY PHOTO:  A place you won’t forget

A reader tells us that if you drive by this place, not only will you never forget it, but you’ll feel like you’re a Halloween version of the movie Groundhog Day.   No way, this friend tells us, that he would ever venture down this driveway – even in the daytime.  We’ll tell you this:  It’s in South Carolina.  But where?  Send your best guess to:  editor@charlestoncurrents.com — and make sure to include the name of the town in which you live.  Please also write “Mystery Photo” in the subject line.
