McCormick, South Carolina

We have a good site at Hawe Creek Campground. All the sites are very spacious and on the water but there are so many trees between the water you do not have a clear view of the lake.
Yesterday we had to go into the town of McCormick to do some grocery shopping.  As it would take a little time at the grocery store we wanted to eat a bite before returning home.
We chose Little Italy Pizzeria in one of the old buildings on Mine Street.
The both of us had a small Calzone that was very good and more than enough to fill us up.
After eating and before buy our groceries we drove around town. This is the court house of McCormick. Here is a little information about the town of McCormick.----

About 1850 gold was discovered where the town of McCormick now stands. The Dorn Gold Mine, which later also produced manganese, was bought by Cyrus McCormick in 1869; he donated land for the town, which was named for him in 1882. This mine continued to operate until the 1930s.

We had a good day, good meal, good drive around town and a pleasant day grocery shopping.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
