  • A great experience ... extremely educational, beautiful grounds and a friendly, caring staff. I highly recommend!!
  • The Sumter Co. Genealogical Society is in the basement of the museum in the front of the house. I went there to find some of my ancestors who faught in the Rev War. Found them in books from the 1770s. They have the whole East Coast of books from the early 1770s. So if you are looking for someone, they might have it. There are some small fees if you use some of the research computers. I asked why and the man said, they are all volunteers and it's just a way to get a bit of funding to get other items. I'm fine with that. They have books and local maps for sale also. The man was telling me about up coming events the ladies are planning. A tea party and you come dressed in your favorite time period. I think in Sept.
