“On Thursday afternoon in Scanlonville, a survey marker for the historic African American community was unearthed and transported to the Charleston Museum to be put on display.

“It’s the monument and benchmark for the little town of Scanlonville,” Edward Lee, president of the East Cooper Civic Club, said. “It was formed in 1870, and that was the original marker.”

Archaeologists and Scanlonville neighbors worked together to pull the 500-plus pound marker out of the ground.

“We knew it was somewhere around here,” Lee said. “But this year we found it, so we wanted to take it up.”

Now, the marker will be put on display at the Charleston Museum.” CLICK HERE to see the rest of this story by WCBD-TV
