Did you know the city of Cayce is older than the city of Columbia? Because everything relocated to the state capital, the Cayce area evolved into a much more rural community. For years in the early 20th century, it thrived as a railroad town. Old State Road, the oldest road in South Carolina, was used to cross the state from the sea to the mountains. Now known as State Street, it was home to Cayce's City Hall, a fire station and theater. You can learn more about the early days of the area at the Cayce Historical Museum. Built as a replica of historic Fort Granby, the museum interprets 12,000 years of South Carolina history through artifacts, all found locally. Open your mind and discover the undiscovered.
Explore your creativity while supporting the locally owned State of the Art Gallery and Pottery Studio at 2007 State Street in Cayce. Two friends came together to create the common man’s art gallery that focuses on connecting the community through its artwork. The showroom displays exclusive and original work from South Carolina artists in a casual, friendly and relatable way. If you want to express your own creativity, attend a small group pottery class or take a private lesson with a master potter who can teach you how to work with clay.
