09 Apr Things to Do in Walterboro This Spring
As we move into spring, we thought we should do a blog about all the exciting events and activities happening in Walterboro. Below is a list of our favorite things to do in Walterboro this spring!
Tuskegee Airmen Memorial
Located near the Lowcountry Regional Airport, the outdoor Tuskegee Airmen Memorial is placed in honor of the 332nd, African American fighting group that completed their final training here in Walterboro. The Tuskegee Airmen were well known for their skill during aerial combat, and the respect they earned among their fellow soldiers when segregation was still an issue among black soldiers at the time.
