SC ENCYCLOPEDIA:  South Carolina’s lighthouses

S.C. Encyclopedia  |  South Carolina’s 180-mile coastline is replete with bays, inlets, and harbors. To assist shipping and aid navigation, lighthouses and beacons have dotted the South Carolina coast for centuries. The earliest warning lights were probably bonfires lit to aid ships entering the harbor at Charleston. South Carolina’s first lighthouse, built in 1767, stood on Middle Bay Island (now a part of Morris Island) in the Charleston harbor.

REVIEW:  Lighthouse

REVIEW: Lighthouse

Lighthouse, by P.D. James, reviewed by Elliott Brack: “Starting to read a newly-purchased book, immediately the writing wasn’t interesting. The author didn’t keep me alert after a few pages. So I turned to a book I had for years, by the English mystery writer P.D. James. Immediately I was hooked with her ‘Lighthouse.’ “
