Looking at the map before heading to Hunting Island State Park, I realized I was going to go very close to the town I was born in. So I decided to stop for the night in Kinards, SC and take a quick trip to my hometown.
I was born in Prosperity, SC. It’s a very small town that made the news a while back when Clinton was running for President. The following sign (or one like it) made it to newspapers and the TV news -
Clinton one way, prosperity the other!
While there I visited the cemetery where my grandparents are buried. My grandparents lived next door to the cemetery and I have to admit as a kid we probably played around more than we should have around the graves. The house in the background is where my grandparents lived.
I like to joke and say that I wasn’t born in a hospital. I was born in a clinic. The last time I was here I noticed it was still there, but closed and in bad shape. So I decided to get a picture to show people the run down clinic I was born in. To my surprise this is what I found --
I guess saying I was born at a Dollar General will not be quite true, but that’s the spot where I was born! At least I think this is where the clinic used to be! It was just a few houses down from where we lived and I would tell people that my mom walked to the clinic when I was born.
Another clue to my current location. This one may give it away!
