The Revolutionary War Visitor Center at Camden is being created as the gateway to South Carolina’s pivotal role in the American Revolution as well as the multitude of other things Kershaw County has to offer. Masterfully designed and planned, the center is a destination for visiting, gathering, learning and sharing.
Our $6 million complex is built on 3.4 acres and is comprised of three buildings – the Public House, Market Building at Pine Tree Creek, and Liberty Hall.
Designed as the cornerstone of the complex, the Public House replicates an historic local tavern. The Public House museum features exhibits that tell the story of the Southern Campaign and South Carolina’s role in the American Revolution. The Public House also includes the Visitor Center and gift shop.
MARKET BUILDING AT PINE TREE CREEK
Authentically modeled on an old-style, open-air market that once stood across from the historic Robert Mills Courthouse, the Market Building at Pine Tree Creek, with its brick fireplaces on either end, will serve as a beautiful gathering space and meeting venue.
Designed to accommodate large groups, private and corporate events, education symposia and more, Liberty Hall will serve as a hub for learning, sharing and gathering.
Designed as the cornerstone of the complex, the Public House replicates Camden’s ‘Old Tavern’. The tavern was the place where travelers and locals alike would stop in off the dusty roads to hear the latest – from gossip to critical news. (The local tavern could be equated to today’s internet!)
Built in the Charleston single-house style of the era, you will step back in time to enjoy the fascinating museum quality exhibits and artifacts showcasing South Carolina’s role in the American Revolution, as well as our Native American and African American heritage, and the important role women played in the war.
The Public House also houses the Visitor Center, providing helpful information on how to enjoy all there is to do and see in Camden and Kershaw County, and our gift shop.
Kershaw & Co. Shop
Located in the Public House, the Kershaw & Co. Shop offers a host of goods celebrating the American Revolution, colonial life, Camden, and Kershaw County. Browse, shop and take home a special souvenir commemorating your visit. All proceeds benefit the Historic Camden Foundation.
A perfect setting for weddings, gatherings, corporate meetings, or private events, the Center has a variety of indoor spaces as well as lovely grounds.
