9780738591193: St. Paul's Parish (Images of America)

St. Paul's Parish is a bedroom community outside the greater historic city of Charleston, South Carolina. The parish is comprised of a series of small, close-knit communities, including Meggett, Yonges Island, Hollywood, Rantowles, Ravenel, and Adams Run. Over the years, it has been a site of key Revolutionary War battles, a mobilization point for Confederate forces, a summer vacation spot for Charlestonians, home of South Carolina's second oldest settlement, and, most importantly, an area dominated by agriculture and industry. The entire parish has been dependent on agriculture since the first settlers arrived. By the early 1900s, St. Paul's Parish had become a vegetable-growing super center that surpassed many larger cities and towns across the United States. At one point in time, Meggett was the cabbage capital of the world! Truck farming, as it was known, made the "Cabbage Patch" and its citizens world-famous and rich until the 1950s; it started to slowly decline and came to a halt in the early 1960s.
