Description

Little Hell is the name of a landing on the Savannah River. It is so named because riverboat captains considered it to be “a hell of a job” to land there. The water is swift, and many underwater rocks abound, resembling granite, and some as large as a house are along the banks. Some of these large rocks are visible at low water. A good, flowing well is located at Little Hell. Source: Names in South Carolina, Vol. 19, p. 51, USC
