South Carolina Cotton Museum

The South Carolina Cotton Museum is a "Blue Star Museum" and is the home of the Lee County Veterans Museum. The South Carolina Cotton Museum is a major interpretive site preserving the legacy of cotton and rural life. Exhibits of farm and manufacturing equipment spanning two centuries allow visitors to experience the cotton culture and way of life from the field to the factory. The Company Store, located inside the museum, carries a variety of unique cotton themed and locally grown/manufactured products as well as a large selection of educational books. The Tribute to Felix "Doc" Blanchard, a three-figure statue of South Carolina's only Heisman Trophy recipient, is located in the Flag Park across the street from the museum. The Cotton Park is adjacent to the museum. The Lee County Veterans Museum, located in the adjoining building, is a tribute to "Our Heroes" from the Revolutionary War to the present conflicts.
