Historic Peachtree Rock falls

A Lexington County landmark has fallen to the ground after standing the test of time. Peachtree Rock, part of the Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve, is known to many in the Midlands. It is an inverted sandstone formation complete with fossil evidence from when the ocean was located in the Midlands of South Carolina.

So the thing we don’t know yet is if it was a natural occurrence or if “man” influenced the downfall of this iconic formation.

Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve comprises 460 acres and is co-managed by the S.C. Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources.
