The Bart Garrison Agricultural Museum of South Carolina is committed to the interpretation and preservation of South Carolina's agricultural heritage, and the impact and importance of agriculture to current and future culture and economies.
The Bart Garrison Agricultural Museum of South Carolina, named in honor of the late Senator T. Ed and Juanita Garrison's son, is an organization dedicated to South Carolina's agricultural heritage. Our goal is to spread knowledge of agriculture, and its impact on our state's economy and culture; past, present and future. Our interpretation ranges from historic practices and artifacts, to the Future of Agriculture, and how sustainable, local agriculture is experiencing a resurgance in our state. Join us for a one of a kind experience, whether an individual or group, and "Come Grow With Us!"
