Really enjoyed visiting the museum...very interesting displays and documents on the history of Cayce....also, the grounds around the museum are fun for strolling and the younger family members will find lots to do. A good time investment for an individual or family.

They have the largest arrowhead collection I have ever seen. All of the docents are caring professionals and spend time to help you get to know the history of Cayce and West Columbia. It is worth a trip for anyone!

This place is a well kept secret and filled with some amazing historic items including General Cornwallis' table. I would suggest it to anyone interested in hearing of the local history of Saxe Gotha.
