Before I DO at Hollywood, South Carolina Wedding
Located in Hollywood, South Carolina, sits a gorgeous home with a unique story. Built in the 1800s, this beauty started out as a 24-hour general store for the Stono Ferry that docked on this property. After several different owners throughout many decades, parcels of the land were sold and divided up between several children of the Jarvis family. They were unaware of the significance of the history and wanted to have the home demolished to rebuild a new modern home. Thankfully, two of the Jarvis sons realized what a mistake that would be and purchased the home for a huge deal: $1.00! They were able to have this historic home carefully moved to its present location, still on the parcel of land purchased by William Jarvis in 1974.
