In light of the Covid 19 pandemic, we have closed the Museum to visitors.  Our priority is to keep our visitors, employees, and volunteers safe.  We are sorry to close and will reopen as soon as we feel it is totally safe to do so.



Muskets, marshland, rice, rivers, and revolution.  What do these seemingly unrelated subjects have in common?  The Georgetown County Museum offers fascinating connections between these and many other facets of life that span almost 300 years of American history lived out in the daily lives of the citizens of Georgetown, South Carolina.  This colonial town has seen it all, and we keep the spirit of each era in our heritage alive with the many displays and exhibits found here in the Museum.

The Georgetown County Historical Society operates the Museum.  Our mission is to preserve and promote the history of Georgetown County from its origins to the present, providing perspective on the past and a legacy for the future.


Cattails and Cocktails will be held on Sunday, March 1st at Hobcaw Barony from 1 to 4PM.

Tickets may be purchased at the event, at the museum, and on the Shop page on this website.
