Blythefest, Hosted by Trinity United Methodist Church, this Friday and Saturday !!
Weekend in Blythewood
18th, 19th & 20th
To all our football teams and Cross country Track Winners!
Did you Know... As I watched the news the other night I reflected on
how fortunate we are to live in Blythewood, USA. But, as I
have been reading the Blythewood timeline that was not always the
case in our quaint little town of Blythewood. Just imagine... 1861
the Civil War begins in Charleston. 1865 thousands of people
flee Columbia as Sherman advances on Columbia. General Wade
Hampton is in "Doko" as was General Blair from the
Northern Army. Blair burned Dr. S.W. Bookhart's plantation
and ransacked James Bookart's house south of Langford Rd. The Army
destroyed the railroad area and ransacked the Hoffman House
( Town Hall). The faculty of the Female Institute put out
fires of homes by Sandy Level. What a different world and
time. To read more, go to www.blythewoodhistoricalsociety.org

soon to your Favorite town!
