Historic Pendleton Walking Tour

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

In addition to other visitor services, Pendleton District Commission offers the Historic Pendleton Walking Tour on the second Friday and Saturday of each month. Put on your walking shoes and break away from the bustle of 21st Century life. Join docent Ellen Harrison for Pendleton’s Historic Walking Tour through this 1790 town, all of which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Along the way, hear the story of early life behind the doors of many of the town’s 18th and 19th Century historic structures. Learn about the Scots and Irish settlers who first came to the area and about the wealthy, and sometimes not so wealthy, Charlestonians, who built summer homes in the area to escape the Lowcountry’s “bad air.”
