The Iron Oak Barn is a celebration of agricultural history in South Carolina. The McGee Mule Barn, an important heritage landmark located in Starr, is a structure of great historic value for Anderson County and for the state of South Carolina. The McGee family ran a highly successful business out of this barn, exporting mules, the tractors of their day, across SC and the South. There is even on office inside where literal "stock traders" ran the mule business prior to WWII. As you walk through the barn, you can feel the weight of its important history. This barn will be restored to its former glory on the grounds of the Agricultural Museum to be used as an educational piece and event space for corporate gatherings, concerts, weddings, and more.
