Agricultural Museum of South Carolina

Agricultural Museum of South Carolina The state agricultural museum for South Carolina, we are committed to promoting agricultural heritage and ag's impact on our culture and economy
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. In addition, Phase 2 work (2013-2014) will expand the museum to include outdoor educational components, teaching gardens and outdoor classroom space. Join us for a one of a kind experience, whether an individual or group, and "Come Grow With Us!"
