Old 96 District

Historic Oakley Park was built in 1835 by Daniel Byrd, a Virginian who came to Edgefield and became a very successful cotton planter. The beautiful mansion later was the home of Gen. Martin Witherspoon Gary, a fiery Confederate politician and father of the Red Shirt movement that assured the election of Wade Hampton as governor in 1876. Items in the house include period antiques and relics.
