Andrew Jackson State Park – Lancaster, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Lancaster County Photos  |  Andrew Jackson State Park

The Andrew Jackson State Park in Lancaster showcases a museum to highlight the childhood of our nation’s seventh president. Andrew Jackson grew up in this area, which was originally called Waxhaws — named for the Waxhaw Indians who once inhabited the land. The park features an 18th-century schoolhouse, an amphitheater, a campground, hiking trails, and fishing and picnicking areas.

Maxi Farnsworth writes, “This striking statue of President Jackson was completed in 1967 by renowned sculptress Anna Hyatt Huntington (creator of Brookgreen Gardens). He is depicted as a 16 or 17 year old on a farm horse. This piece, entitled The Boy of the Waxhaws, was dedicated just after her 91st birthday. She granted a request from a local sixth grade class to create a statue of their local hero.”
