Photo tour

Not much is left of the historic town of Childsbury, which began in 1705. It was an early frotier town along the Cooper River near the site of a ferry crossing. The Strawberry Chapel was built in 1725 and remains standing. This heritage preserve has a short hiking trail that ends at an overlook with a spectacular view of the upper Cooper River.
