Sunrift Adventures has been in Travelers Rest for almost 30 years. Originally on Hawkins Road (near George Coleman Ford), their current location is the former Brown's Feed and Seed building. I'm not sure what year Brown's Feed and Seed was built at this location, but I believe it was in the early '60's.
My fondest memories of this building, were the many trips inside as a child, buying plants, seeds and garden supplies with my mom and grandma.

Poke Sallet is a toxic plant, but some eat it much like any other green, after boiling it several times.
It's seasoned with fat back or bacon grease, of course.
During the Civil War, many letters were written with a quill and the ink from this plant.
This fine specimen is found in my flowerbed in Travelers Rest.

The Peddler Steakhouse on Poinsett Highway has been around for decades.
Nestled in the woods, the restaurant was once an old train depot.
Where else will they bring a slab of beef to your table so you can see them cut your steak exactly how you want it?
Their salad bar isn't too shabby either!

The Kilgore-Lewis House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1938, it was moved to it's present location on North Academy Street in 1974.
Josiah Kilgore built the house for his daughter, Mary Keziah, as a wedding gift.
Since 1974, the Kilgore-Lewis House has served as the headquarters for the Greenville Council of Garden Clubs.

If you've lived around here for any length of time, you know that kudzu is anything but pretty!
It covers approximately 7 million acres in the South! Used in the 30's for erosion control, the USDA declared it a weed in 1972.
This "beautiful" kudzu is located at the end of Wade Hampton Boulevard and Church Street.

These photos were taken at The Tomatoe Vine on Old Buncombe Road. I love roadside markets like this. Nothing beats the fresh produce found at this market. Well...aside from picking it from your own garden!
I used to take my grandmother there for fruits and veggies. She always called it "The Fruit Jungle". I think it may have actually been called that at some point in time. I still call it that too. :)
