The Old State Road in Cayce, SC. This route follows an old Indian trail path and later in 1747 a public road from Charleston to Granby and points west. The State Road laid out by the newly established Board of Public Works in 1820 from Charleston to Columbia and on to the mountains perpetuated one of the oldest and most travelled routes in the development of the South Carolina backcountry. This particular location is within 50 yards north of the Congaree Creek crossing, and this location is about 2.5 miles downstream from Friday's Ferry, where George Washington crossed the Congaree River in May 1791, to visit Columbia on his Southern Tour of the States.
