Columbia, SC (WLTX) About 30 minutes outside of Columbia's busy streets, politics and congestion you'll find a town where there are no traffic lights, hurried exchanges or busy roads.

The town of Peak was founded in 1853 as a railroad town. It was a local center for farming, business and medical care.

And nobody knows more about the area's history than Dr. Hammie Joe Smith - the town's 85 year old pharmacist.
