Carolina Backcountry Springtime

Saturday, May 8, 2021 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

Let's take a journey. For a day in the Spring you can travel back in time to the year 1800. Visit us at the Carolina Backcountry Homestead and see what life was like for settlers in this part of the backcountry of South Carolina.
We have costumed interpreters that demonstrate blacksmithing, spinning and weaving, our Backcountry Manager Ms. Deborah Watts never disappoints with her food at the outdoor kitchen. You’ll see butter churning and have a chance to try homemade butter on fresh bread, and more.
Early 19th century games like quoits, hoop and stick, and graces will be available for the kids to play. We have added a Backcountry and Barns Scavenger Hunt complete with a special prize. You can explore all of the Backcountry buildings, the Williams-Brice House and the exhibit in McKenzie Hall, "South Carolina, The Food We Celebrate."

This event is free and open to the public! Also, admission is free at all museum locations at this time!
Costumed Volunteers needed for a number of tasks!
