Rainwater Reservoir

Recess Plantation-Hardeeville South Carolina

Cisterns were used to collect rainwater directed by downspouts off the roof of a home. Mostly masonry this type of water storage dates back to biblical times.

I hope you are enjoying the sites of Coastal Georgia and South Carolina. The Recess Hiking trail can be accessed from Laurel Hill Drive at the Savannah Wildlife Refuge.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂
