The Ruins at Palmetto Bluff

Palmetto Bluff is situated in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Palmetto Bluff was the home away from New York city of Richard T. Wilson, Jr. until it burned in 1926.

 Stairway to nowhere.

Tabby is a type of building material used in the coastal Southeast from the late 1500s to the 1850s. It is made of equal parts lime, water, sand, oyster shells, and ash. The ash is a byproduct of preparing the lime, but its presence contributes to the hardening of the end product.

All the dead magnolia leave contribute to the wabi-sabi of the ruins.
