Many people in the Midlands of South Carolina have come to enjoy visiting The Ruins, one of Stateburg’s historic homes, to kick off the holiday season. The day-long event,  hosted by owners Col. and Mrs. Rett Summerville, has become a family tradition because of its carefully chosen themes, events, activities, and displays.
