"Popular Stop Off I-95" Walterboro by grandmaR
Walterboro Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 30 photos
Walterboro is the county seat of Colleton County. When we travel south from our son's house in Summerville, we take US 17 down to Walterboro to get on I-95. We stopped this time because Walterboro is easily accessible off Interstate 95 (access at exits 53 and 57), where there are lodging, dining, and gas station facilities. Other roads of importance include U.S. Highway 15, Alternate U.S. Highway 17, and several state highways.
I keep wanting to add an S to the name (Waltersboro) but it is named for two of the earliest settlers - Paul and Jacob Walter. Paul's small daughter Mary was taken ill with malaria, a common disease in marshy. So the two brothers went looking for a more healthy location in which to live during the summer months and started the town that was later named for them.
We were driving slowly toward Summerville so that we wouldn't have to check in to the motel too early, so we stopped in... more travel advice
