Pendleton Village Green

On the National Register of Historic Places and one of the largest historic districts in the nation, the town of Pendleton attracted well-to-do residents from the Lowcountry of South Carolina and upland farmers alike. The Village Green remains surrounded by a lively business district of shops and restaurants and is the site for many events, including Historic Pendleton Spring Jubilee, a juried arts and crafts festival held the first full weekend every April. Farmers' Hall, which stands on the southwest corner of the Green, was initially constructed in 1826 to serve as the District's Court House, but the county-seat was moved before the building was completed. Local farmers completed the hall as the Farmer's Society Meeting Hall, and it has been in use by that organization since its completion. It was at a meeting in the Hall that John C. Calhoun's son-in-law, Thomas G. Clemson, and the Farmer's Society first conceived the idea of a land-grant university to train farmers in cutting-edge farming technology. Thus, Clemson University was born. In addition to serving as the Farmer's Society meeting hall, the building also features a restaurant where visitors can enjoy lunch and dinner.

On one corner of the Green is Hunter's Store, the heart of commerce in 1850 and now home to Lake Hartwell Country, offers both the largest collection of local history and genealogy north of the city of Columbia, and a Visitor Information Center for area sites and attractions. Group tours of the Pendleton Historic District begin at Hunter's Store. Call to schedule group tours.
