Clemson Area Chamber Of Commerce & Visitors Center
The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country
Located in the Historic Clemson Railroad Depot, the Clemson Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center is unique. The renovation of this 19th-century building was applauded by the Governor, the State Department of Archives and History and the Palmetto Historic Preservation Trust. The decor combines a number of themes with emphasis on the early years of Clemson College and turn-of-the-centry railroad life. The friendly staff serves visitors and newcomers to the area, providing information about the towns of Clemson, Central, Pendleton and Six Mile, as well as all of Pickens County.
