History restored

On a bright, cool day, descendants of Samuel Burdine joined with members of the Pickens County Historical Society, Hagood Mill Foundation and the South Carolina Methodist Conference Historical Society to dedicate and bless the Burdine Lodge Nov. 13. The one-room log cabin, built in the Dacusville Community by Burdine in 1796, is documented three times—1800, 1802 and 1803—in the journals of Francis Asbury as his lodging place when he traveled through the Saluda Grade into South Carolina.
