    19th century gold mine
    This gold mine is an area of 19th century mining operations, and was one of the most important mining sites in the state. The mine was struck in 1852 by William Dorn, who excavated nearly 1 million dollars in gold before the vein was exhausted. Dorn used enslaved African Americans to excavate the dirt and employed several types of mills to process the gold. Dorn became wealthy but lost much after the Civil War. Now the Heritage Gold Mine offers folks guided or self-guided tours, and even an opportunity to really pan for gold! Gold Rush Day is a favorite event here every third Saturday in September.

    Ninety Six National Historic Site
    British fortified town features original fort and Revolutionary War battlefield
    In the late 1750’s several British regiments encamped on these grounds and assisted with constructing and garrisoning fortifications during the Cherokee War. Fort Ninety Six was completed in 1759 to protect backcountry settlers and was the site of two Cherokee attacks in 1760. Ninety Six also played a major role in the Revolutionary War because of its strategic location at the convergence of several important backcountry roads. The first land battle south of New England was fought here in November 1775. In 1780, the British fortified the town and it became an important outpost. Major General Nathanael Greene with 1,000 patriot troops staged a siege here against 550 loyalists. Although battered by the siege, the British-built earthen Star Fort remains one of the best preserved examples of an original 18th century fortification. The British finally abandoned Ninety Six and returned to Charleston.

    The Grange
    1935 public building now agricultural headquarters
    The Donalds Grange was constructed in 1935 and originally served as the Town Hall, the local grange (meaning a public building with many uses) and the public library. The fieldstone construction and locally produced lumber make this building an important example of Depression Era public buildings. Since its construction, the well-preserved building has been the meeting hall for the agricultural and community-service organization known as the Donalds Grange.

    The MACK
    Art exhibits, gift shop, classes in historic former hotel
    The McCormick Arts Council (or the MACK) occupies what was once the Keturah Hotel which was rebuilt in 1910. The original Carolina Hotel on this site burned in the late 1800’s. Salesmen would stay at the Keturah and “drum” their wares. One room on the main floor of the hotel used for this purpose is called “the drummer room.” Today the MACK houses a gift shop full of items made by local artisans, exhibits on the gallery walls that change monthly and many opportunities to attend a special event or art-focused programs.

    Trinity Episcopal Church

    Civil War era church noted for its French Gothic Revival architecture

    While in the charming town of Abbeville, your eye will be immediately drawn to the 125 foot steeple that belongs to the "pink" Trinity Episcopal Church. Abbeville was named after Abbeville, France which was why this church was built in the French Gothic Revival style. It was built and consecrated by 1860, almost 3 weeks before South Carolina's succession from the Union was decided during a meeting in this very town.

    Willington On the Way

    With a population of around 200 people, Willington is a small village that was once a cotton boom town, whose growth was sparked by the coming of the railroad in 1886. By 1916, it boasted thirteen stores, a livery stable, doctor’s office and post office. Its decline began in the years of the boll weevil and the depression.

    Today "Willington On the Way" is a row of stores built around 1912 that are completely restored for modern uses. You can stop by Willington to see history coming alive again through their history center, a non-profit book store, a visitor's center and an African American schoolhouse. There's even a locally owned Thai restaurant right down the street!
