Local museum in historic mansion

The museum, housed in a 17,500 square feet 1930’s Winter Colony mansion, features over 30 rooms of exhibits. Named for the Banksia rose, “Banksia” was built by northern millionaire horseman, Richard Howe. Twice used as as a college campus and library, the building was a boarding house in the 1950’s during the construction of the Savannah River Site. Today, unique exhibits include equestrian, golf, military, pottery, nature, architecture, a county exhibit room and more.
