History Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
The Cayce Historical Museum showcases Cayce's rich cultural and historical heritage. Exhibits emphasize periods of Native American settlement, 18th century colonial trade, the American Revolution, the Civil War, WWII and modern-industrial history.

Visitors can also explore the museum's sprawling grounds, featuring numerous outdoor exhibits, picnic tables, and a beautiful hiking trail that backs up to the Granby Pavilion and the Granby Gardens Playground.

The main building in the Cayce Historical Museum complex is a replica of a trading post, which was built in the Cayce area in 1765. That trading post was seized by the British during the American Revolution and used as a fort. In 1817, the building was purchased by the Cayce family who used it as a private residence for nearly 100 years. When citizens decided to incorporate the town in 1914, it was named after the Cayce family.

The Museum welcomes visitors to comment and post on it's page, however, spam, advertisements, and comments/ posts that aren't related to the Museum, Museum sanctioned events, or the City of Cayce will be deleted.

  • A True hidden gem. Like a little village from the past. Makes a visit to the nearby Cayce River walk much mire interesting ! Staff is So knowledgeable and helpful. Plan to spend an hour or more in museum and walking the grounds. Beauty park with nature trails and a Cinderella pumpkin coach !! Beware the Wildlife !!!
  • Surprisingly a cool little museum with a lot of little artifacts including a checker table that general cornwalce played at (there most treasured piece), they also have the oldest wood cabin left in the south east. This is not a place you would spend the whole day but in a hour you will see most of what this place has to offer. Good afternoon trip if you are looking for something to do in Columbia that is a bit off the beaten path.
