Description

Georgetown was one of the wealthiest towns on the South Carolina coast until the Civil War in 1860 brought the economy to a halt. The museum exhibits show the rise and fall of this colonial town. More than 300 years of Georgetown County and surrounding area history are display. Topics covered include early shipbuilding, Native Americans, the agricultural industry in rice and indigo, plantation life and slavery and military history. The museum gift shop sells a variety of Georgetown history books, memorabilia and souvenirs. Located one block from the historic downtown thoroughfare, the museum is closed Sunday and Monday.
