Pendleton Historic Foundation

Pendleton Historic Foundation The Pendleton Historic Foundation preserves and restores two historic properties in Pendleton, South Carolina: Woodburn and Ashtabula.

Woodburn and Ashtabula Historic Homes are national treasures located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in beautiful upstate South Carolina. The families who built and lived in (or on the grounds of) these two homes had a hand in shaping the history of the Carolinas and the South as a whole -- for better or worse. Come experience the buildings, the artifacts, and the memories they left to future generations at these two very different historic sites. Call us to learn more, or visit our website at http://www.pendletonhistoricfoundation.org/ . We hold low-priced special events -- reenactments, lectures, kid-friendly presentations, and more -- year round, so "like" us to keep up with our educational offerings! *** Looking for things to do in Clemson or Pendleton? Here are the details. ** HOURS **** HOURS ** Ashtabula and Woodburn are close for the Winter season, but private tours can be arranged. The house will re-open for guided tours in April. Private tours can be arranged for groups of 6 or more – advanced reservations are required – call 864-646-7249 during office hours. Office Hours: Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm Office number – 864-646-7249 Office email – [email protected] ADMISSION PRICES: $6, or $2 for ages 5 – 10.

Please help find this heirloom by scanning the ground if you visit the Green!

From Pendleton United Methodist Church:
LOST: One of our youth lost a silver or lite colored gold cross pendant uptown today during the Jubilee. It was a family heirloom worn by his great grandfather in WWII. If you happened to have found one please contact Pendleton UMC office (864) 646-3355.
