The Aiken County Historical Museum is located in downtown Aiken. The museum houses a wide variety of collections relating to the history of Aiken County, from its earliest settlers to today. The museum’s collection is kept in Banksia, which is a 1931 winter colony mansion. On this 3.5 acre property, you can also find the Ergle Log House. It was built in 1808 and is one of the oldest buildings still standing in Aiken County.
Another popular attraction at the historical museum is the “I Don’t Live Here Anymore” display, which is a tribute to the people whose homes were destroyed in order for the Savannah River Site to be constructed.
For hours and more information, you can check the Aiken County Historical Museum’s main website.
