Rice Museum

The Rice Museum, known locally as "The Town Clock", is a prominent symbol of Georgetown County. The Museum shares the history of a society dependent on the rice crop through its many exhibits. Students and scouts can explore house maps, dioramas, and artifacts; the Browns Ferry Vessel, the oldest vessel of colonial manufacture in the US; and stories of prominent Georgetown people like Joseph Hayne Rainey, who rose to become the first African-American elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Groups will view the Old Market and Kaminski Hardware buildings, both of which date from 1842.
