St. Matthews Sunflowers — Calhoun County, South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  Calhoun County  |  St. Matthews Sunflowers

The small town of St. Matthews was originally called Lewisville, in honor of Colonel Lewis, a distinguished land owner living in the area. Lewisville eventually became St. Matthews, in honor of the old St. Matthew’s Parish which eventually became Calhoun County.

When Calhoun County was established, the county attorney accidentally left the apostrophe in “St. Matthew’s” out of the bill. From that point forward, the town name has officially been “St. Matthews” – without an apostrophe.

Sunflowers are my most favorite flower and for as long as i can remember i have been wanting to visit a sunflower field! My question to you is, can we come and visit, walking around in the sunflower field? take pictures? spend time in the field? It would be great if you could let me know all the details and what the best, most beautiful time is to visit the sunflower field. Again i thank you so much!

Hi, Stacy. We are unaffiliated with the owners of this property. However, Draper WMA in McConnells is known for its glorious display of sunflowers: http://www.sciway.net/sc-photos/york-county/draper-wma.html Best of luck!

Hi,
I am Stacy. My daughter is trying to find a Sunflower field to make her bridal portraits in. Can you please let me know if your Sunflower field could be used and when the flowers are the prettiest or at their peak. Also exactly where you are located. I would also like the information of who I would need to contact for permission and how to contact them. Any information you can provide will be so appreciated.
Thank you,
Stacy

Hi, LaToya. I’m afraid this is private property. However, Draper WMA in York County is known for its sunflower fields and is open to the public: http://www.sciway.net/sc-photos/york-county/draper-wma.html

Generally speaking, sunflowers are at their peak in late June and early July.

Hi! Is this sunflower field open to the public? And if so, where is it located? The map shows the center of St. Matthews, but does the field have a specific address? Thanks so much!

I would love to come see and take photos of the sunflower fields in St. Matthews…can you email me when they are in full bloom and where they are? We live in Summerville and love to take “road trips”. Thank you in advance.
