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.

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.
