Welcome to Palmetto Compress and Warehouse.  This building is one of my favorite hidden gems in Columbia, especially this section with the climbing vines.  when we first moved to South Carolina, Michael and I had a blast exploring our new city, and this building was our best find!  Check out this post (New Perspective on an Old Warehouse) for more pictures of Palmetto Compress and Warehouse!

“A building does not have to be an important work of architecture to become a first-rate landmark. Landmarks are not created by architects. They are fashioned by those who encounter them after they are built. The essential feature of a landmark is not its design, but the place it holds in a city’s memory. Compared to the place it occupies in social history, a landmark’s artistic qualities are incidental.”
