A most excellent tag.

'Bout time for a good old Rvrhwki tag! I know where this one is, too. My morning is tied up tomorrow but after that all bets are off, so y'all better grab it quick. Speedy might race late tomorrow afternoon at Neeses if he gets some carb problems sorted on his 650.

Good grab, Gigs! I ended up not riding at all this weekend. Thankfully that is a very rare occurrence. I'm not usually allergic to pollen but I guess there's a first time for everything. This pollen is doing a number on me right now.

Actually it is on Jackson Creek Rd between 213 and 34, closer to the 34 end. The land owner stopped to see what we were doing. He said he's been having problems with the house being vandalized lately. He asked me to write our tag numbers down for his reference. We explained the game to him and he was ok with us taking pictures of it. It seemed to put him at ease a little when I was able to talk to him about some of the history of the parsonage house, the church, and the Gladney cemetery. I asked him about it being built by Samuel Gladney and he said he had be told it wasn't. He said it was a Captain H (I couldn't catch the full name). He also said the the stone was the ballast from the ships from Europe and brought up from Charleston.
He said it has been in his family for quite a long time, and they are wanting to start restoring it before it gets worse off. He said it is for sale if anyone wants to purchase it, he didn't offer up a price though. I was told a long time ago if you have to ask then you can't afford it.

Gigs and I also went to the church. He did good on the mile of gravel to get there.

Tks for the info. Yeah, see the broken windows so figured it was getting trashed. Love to see the interior though. Just may have to go for a ride Tues.

This is the info that i found while researching the tag:

The Old Stone House is significant as a rare example of eighteenth-century stone construction. Samuel Gladney (ca. 1740-1800) received a royal land grant in 1768 on which he constructed the Old Stone House. A corner of the house bears the date 1784. The house passed through several owners before it was purchased in 1870 by the Lebanon Presbyterian Church for use as a parsonage.

It probably isn't really the proper street address, but put 9987 Jackson Creek Road, Winnsboro into google maps and go to street view and you can see it.

Just south of this site is
Gladney Cemetery 8018 Jackson Creek Rd, Winnsboro post # 5094 in the SC Tag-O-Rama. You turn up through the woods on a dirt road and cross though a field and there it is. There are some neat inscriptions on some of the markers.

The old church ruins, you're on your own.

Have a nice ride. I really enjoy riding in this area.

What a great tag and an even greater piece of history. I don't know if those stones came from wrecked ships or were quarried locally, but look at the corners of the structure - perfectly straight. A good example of what the Irish do when they're not drinking.

The current landowner said it was ballast for the ships to balance the loaded vessel. I haven't seen any other structures in the area with the same type of stone. Near here I have seen a lot of structures of the blue granite from nearby.

I don't have history on the New Tag. I was riding back from the stone house with Ryan and i saw in my rearview the Pepsi logo on the old store so I flipped a "B" and snapped the shot. FYI no 3G out there. Good news as stated earlier i covered a mile on gravel and did not crash
