Return Visit to Hagood Mill Historic Site, Pickens, South Carolina


Last post I mentioned there’s more to see at the Pickens County Historical Society’s Hagood Mill site. Well, yesterday afternoon I went back for another look. And to enjoy that drive North on Route 178 one more time.

That’s the Hagood Mill Site stage you see above. Plenty of good music played there. An essential component of the Mill’s programming.


The two log cabins alone are well worth the visit. Both have been relocated here from their original sites. The Murphree-Hollingsworth cabin on the right was built in the early 1790s, one of the earliest structures in this part of the country. The Hagood cabin on the left was build a bit later, in the early 1800s, and has been moved three times. Durable construction! Each cabin has a story to tell.


I was hoping to see the petroglyph exhibit this visit, but it isn’t ready yet. Click here for information about the project.


There’s much more to see here. The Mill alone requires hours of study. Here’s a short video of the wooden water wheel.
