All over the USA are small towns with a few hundred to a few thousand people, most of which are worth no more than a few minute's stop, if indeed they are worth a stop at all. For many years I have tried to make Blackville, SC, in the southwestern part of the state & SE from Augusta, Ga., a stopover either going to or coming from America's most historic city, Charleston, SC. The format is cafeteria style, pay for what you get; except that the evening meal is $8.95 plus 7% sales tax for a meat, bread, & 3 other entrees of your choosing. The restaurant features a variety of rich desserts for an added cost, but you may not have room for any after eating your main entrees. I always go for the meat loaf, as it has the most distinctive sauce on it that I have ever tasted. The broccoli-rice-cheese casserole is another favorite. There are varieties of homemade bread to go with the meal, as well as loaves for sale in the adj. gift shop.

When you finish eating, follow Hwy. 3 5 km/3miles N to Healing Springs. Turn right at the sign, go a short distance & turn right again in front of the ante-bellum (the word means before the un-civil war of 150 years past) Healing Springs Baptist Church, & drive several hundred ft., or perhaps 200 meters or less. Pure mineral water flows out of a number of pipes at the end of the rd. Chemical analysis has proven the beneficial minerals in the water. Take along as many jugs as you can, & take all you want. It is literally a gift from God, as the property on which the springs are located was deeded to God by the previous owner in 1944.

The name comes from the Indians who visited the springs in pre-revolutionary times, and believed that the water had healing properties.
