We document events that took place in this region from 1650 – 1900 with permanent and temporary exhibits. Visit us and allow history to come to life before your eyes! Tour a preserved Early American homestead and walk the paths where Native Americans once hunted for food. See replicas of the dwellings built by the Waxhaw Indians. Experience panning for gold and savor the aroma of our herb garden. Hear a story or maybe a song from days gone by. The culture of the Scotch-Irish settlers, who courageously forged a new civilization in the Carolina backcountry, is now remembered in this lasting memorial with exhibits inside and outside on our grounds. Enjoy our region’s history, brought to life at the Museum of the Waxhaws.
