The Broom Place

Built in 1740, The Broom Place is located in the heart of the Historic Boykin district. Brooms are made on the original broom equipment (more than 100 years old) inside a one-room restored former slave house. Some of the original boards and furnishings remain. The area was living quarters for the slaves who worked on the farms and at the water-powered flour and grits mill. Watch the craftsman make brooms as they were made many years ago. You can still purchase handmade brooms, made on the 100-year-old equipment.
