Folks here have done an excellent job of preserving their history here. Be sure to look around the inside walls and ceiling to see wooden structure of old tobacco barn. Good collection and we'll presented.

I take Appalachian fiddle lessons here and have loved visiting the museum every Saturday! They offer 6-week courses in Guitar, Fiddle, Banjo and occasionally mountain dulcimer. Wonderful staff and if you come on a Saturday morning you will be treated to musical accompaniment!

A great history lesson of this beautiful area. This center is set up to take you from the beginning to present time. This is a wonderful history of Oconee County and this part of South Carolina.
