WELCOME TO THE GEORGETOWN COUNTY MUSEUM
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.
The Georgetown County Historical Society received a Growth Grant from South Carolina Humanities, www.schumanities.org. Funding for the Growth Grants has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the American Rescue Act of 2021 and the NEH Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP) initiative.
