Kershaw County High Point Trip Report
Date: March, 1999
The HP (house and 22 acres) is owned by a Ms. Amanda Fontaine, who purchased it within
the past year. She is engaged in fixing it up (the house dates from 1840) and would like
to turn it into a B-and-B, so it may cost you something to visit this one in the future.
I found Ms. Fontaine to be an agreeable hostess who showed me around and had no problem
with my probably perverse desire to stand on the highest ground I could find.
As I was leaving, I offered to show her the Xerox copy of the map with her house on it.
"Oh, thank you very much!" she said. It hadn't been my intention to give her the map,
but I didn't want to mess things up for those who followed me, so I pretended that had
been my intention all along. The things I do for you guys!From the intersection of
SC 97 and 522 in the hamlet of Liberty Hill, go south on 97 about a mile (I'm doing
this without a map, remember!) to the new post office on the right. Right behind the
post office is a dirt driveway ascending the Kershaw Co. HP. I found Ms. Fontaine
working about halfway up the hill. Please don't abuse her hospitality in the future.
