1 The log is a portion of a Bald Cypress tree, cut from virgin swampland in the 18th or 19th century during the creation of the rice fields along the Waccamaw River. The original marks from hand axes used by enslaved Africans to fell the trees are still visible. It is believed the tree was at least 500 years old when it was cut. It was recovered from the Waccamaw River in 2009. The log is 17' long, 10' in diameter and weighs approximately 6 tons. Path to Waccmaw Boat Ramp. 2. Patricia Blackstock 3. Wally Snider 4. Archway 5.

The Labyrinth at Brookgreen Gardens
Unlike a maze, a labyrinth is a single path that follows an intricate pattern leading from the beginning to the center and back.
Labyrinths are used in a variety of traditions as places of meditative walking, realization, ceremony and reflection. The Labyrinth at Brookgreen Gardens combines the ancient cross-cultural aspects, ringing together traditions of the people who have occupied this spot including Native Americans, enslaved Africans, and Europeans.
The design of the Brookgreen labyrinth is a seven-circle Medieval Chartres-style with a 76-foot diameter and measures 4/10 mile total, inside and out. Walk the labyrinth to experience the past and present and to connect with the natural environment. There is no right or wrong way to walk. As with all voyages it begins with the first step.
