Trail of Tears, day one

June 26, 2009 Posted to: MB Trail of Tears

On Tuesday, 20 May 1952, Meher Baba and nine close companions set out on a journey to the west coast. They left the Myrtle Beach Center and headed across South Carolina. They spent the night in Columbia at a hotel called the “Forest Court Hotel”. The building has since been turned into apartments and is known as “Forest Oaks Apartments”.

What’s interesting about this place is that it’s very clean and well-maintained. It obviously is cared for by someone. However, it lies in the middle of a rundown neighborhood with trash and abandoned houses/businesses. We got there too late to talk to anyone but felt it was in good hands.
