I stopped by to visit and was very impressed with the display of local history. The slave cabin was very impressive and Calhoun's death bed, too. You really need to visit to discover the history of Edisto.

Thank you for your review, but I wanted to correct the information about the admission fee. It is NOT $10. It is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for students. Children aged 10 and under are free. We hope you'll come back again.

I loved learning the local history both good and bad. We have come so far. . . The ladies who give their time to the museum are dedicated and very friendly.

A place you need to slow down and see. Gives history of island and the people who settled, lived and developed the Island. It is worth a little time to see. I was on a tour and had a tour guide.
