South Carolina Memorial Garden
Established in 1944 by the Garden Club of South Carolina, Inc. (GCSC), the South Carolina Memorial Garden is the nation's first landscape of its kind created to recognize veterans of World War II for their military service. It rests on land donated by club member Sarah Boylston. Noted New York landscape architect Loutrel Winslow Briggs (1893-1977), who is credited with establishing the nationally recognized term "Charleston Garden," donated its design in 1946.
