The largest organized Native American nation remaining in South Carolina is the PeeDee, with a population of about 2500 in four northeastern counties. Legend says that at Table Rock State Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a gigantic Native American chieftain dined at the "table" high above ordinary mortals. America's first symphony orchestra was organized in 1767 by the Saint Cecilia Society. South Carolina is the second largest producer of juicy, tasty peaches.
