Anderson County Museum

The museum offers exhibits which reflect life and achievements of the citizens of Anderson County and the State of South Carolina. The exhibit entitled “Keep the Home Fires Burning” focuses on the men and women who have fought in various American conflicts. Featured among the stories is that of Cpl. Freddie Stowers, an African-American winner of the Medal of Honor in World War I. Stowers, a 21-year-old, non-commissioned officer, lead his men on an assault on Hill 188 during the Champagne Offensive in France. Machine gun took a heavy toll on his troops. Although suffering a mortal wound he rallied the troops taking the hill. President George Bush posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor to relatives of Freddie Stowers in 1991, as the first African-American to receive the medal from World War I. The museum also contains interactive exhibits and artifacts pertaining to local history and archives for genealogical and local history research. In addition, there's a gift shop featuring Anderson County and SC memorabilia, locally made crafts and foods.
