QUICK FACT FRIDAY 2018.04.27
Posted on Apr 28th, 2018

Filled with prize-winning camellias and azaleas, along with a variety of flowers, shrubs and trees, the Osgood's creation was opened to the public in 1943. Pierates Cruze continued as a tourist attraction until 1959. With the deaths of the Osgood's, the land was subdivided and sold in 1961. Small remnants of the gardens endure: columns that stood in the Amalfi remain; a belled wall (photo above) was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989, but reconstructed with the original bricks.
 
Pierates Cruze is Stop #19 on the Old Village Tour available on the Historical Commission's website and app, linked here.
