Francisco de Gordillo explored the present-day South Carolina coast during 1521 but was unable to establish a town. The French also failed to colonize in 1562. The English settled here in 1670, but they moved on to Charleston when the conditions worsened. The two Carolinas split officially in 1729. The state was the first to leave the Union during the Civil War.
South Carolina was once primarily agricultural and still grows peanuts, watermelons, peaches and tobacco. Today, though, it is mostly known for its textile mills. Wood products, asbestos, steel, pulp and chemicals are particularly important. A commercial tea plantation, and the only one in America, lies on an island 20 miles South of Charleston.

Designed for Aging
Many new retirement developments are being "designed for aging." What does this mean? While baby boomers have every intention of staying active during their retirement years, living with design elements that make one's living space more accommodating is also a good idea. In homes designed for aging, the home has just one story. The path from the master bedroom to the bathroom is short, well-defined and well-lit. Door handles are levers instead of knobs. All thresholds are flush. Toilets are a few inches higher. Bathroom floors are made from a no-slip material. In a well-designed home, these are just a few of the features specifically incorporated for aging bodies.
