OUR HISTORY

The Bart Garrison Agricultural Museum of South Carolina opened its doors to the public in June 2013, as a small museum with exhibits representing the history and future of South Carolina agriculture.  Since then, we have grown into the state agricultural museum for SC, with indoor and outdoor exhibits, monthly educational programs, tours, preserved structures (from a Pee Dee tobacco barn to a mountain school house) and now an event center; Iron Oak Barn.  Named for the son of the late Sen. T.Ed and Juanita Garrison who died tragically in a farm-related accident in 1990, BGAMSC has always been committed to preserving the agrarian culture of SC that he represented so well.  Our goal is to showcase culture, look at the past, and learn about the future.  If we can spark the love of plant or animal agriculture in a child, or send an adult home with a new-found skill (say...canning), then we have done our job.
