SC Picture Project  |  Contributors  |  Linda Brown

Linda Brown is a true South Carolina gem! Not only does she send us beautiful photos of interesting places, but she includes historic details to accompany each picture. Her career as an editor and her interest in local history are evident in her submissions, which range from historic buildings in Williamsburg County to farms along the Grand Strand.
