More than 1,200 historic sites in South Carolina are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and distinctive architecture throughout the state reflects the pride and history of European, African and Caribbean influences.

From the War for Independence and the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement, South Carolina has been at the center of both conflict and resolution throughout America’s history. South Carolina historical sites including military sites, museums and synagogues, along with a range of historical festivals and celebrations, reveal fascinating stories you won’t find in history books.
