Upcountry History Museum

Learn about the history of the Upcountry region with an interactive exhibit. School groups have the opportunity to explore a particular time in history with a two-part program: the History Lab gives them hands-on experience with their topic, with activities like an archaeology dig, studying photographs, or analyzing artifacts; while the exhibit itself encourages them to explore the museum's oral histories, artifacts, and other primary sources on their own. Some topics include the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and the history of Greenville. Scouts can work toward badge requirements with workshop activities for history, geography, civics, and much more.
