The Elloree Heritage Museum & Cultural Center, Inc. is an exciting and educational view of South Carolina's rural past! The museum portrays rural life at the time the Town of Elloree was founded by William J. Snider. Mr. Snider welcomes visitors to Elloree and sends them on a tour of Cleveland Street as it appeared in 1900 with recreated stores, a bank and hotel. Visitors also explore a plantation cotton gin; learn how cotton is grown, picked, and ginned today; see the 18th-century Snider cabin and meet our farm mule Ruby Doo. All who visit the museum soon come to understand why our town is named Elloree, the Native American word for "The Home I Love."
Docents, in period dress, are available for tours in advance. A NEW AUDIO TOUR IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR VISITORS.
