One of the oldest surviving grist mills still producing grain in SC

The Hagood Mill Historic Site & Folklife Center is home to the historic Hagood Gristmill. On the National Register of Historic Places, the mill was originally constructed circa 1825 and built at its present location in 1845. It is one of the oldest known surviving gristmills still producing grain products in South Carolina. It has the largest waterwheel in the state (20 ft.) and is the only waterwheel in SC still made of wood. Today the site features the fully operational gristmill, a traditional barn with a family farm exhibit, visitors center with gift shop, two historic log cabins dating from 1791 and 1925, a blacksmith shop, cotton gin building, moonshine still, and a large outdoor stage for musical events. Hagood Mill is famous for their event series every 3rd Saturday of each month that offers traditional arts, folklife and living history demonstrations and musical entertainment such as bluegrass, old time and blues.

Also on the property is the Hagood Creek Petroglyph Site, which includes a climate-controlled orientation lobby, displays, and viewing room for thirty-two petroglyphs!
