Old Woman's Folly

This densely wooded swamp on Lawton’s Calibogia Plantation is now lost as well as densely inhabited, but formerly was marked on island maps for many decades.  It did not denominate the site of any elderly female’s indiscretion but was probably the site of an old woman who liked her own company and chose to live alone in the woods.
