As people celebrate the warm weather this week with strolls on the Cayce Riverwalk, they might notice something new but really old.
A 1929 granite marker commemorating the town of Granby was moved last week to the edge of the riverwalk section between the river locks and Riverland Park. The marker had been on the edge of a nearby graveyard, off limits to the general public because it’s surrounded by quarry property owned by Martin Marietta.
The transfer of the marker was a joint project of the Colonial Dames, Cayce, the Cayce Museum, Martin Marietta and the River Alliance.
Granby, the original planned community in the area, was laid out in 1735 on the banks of the Congaree River.
