Benjamin Mays Historic Site Tour

The site contains Dr. Mays' birth home which was removed from its original location in Epworth in southeast Greenwood County and furnished with circa 1900 furniture. In addition, the site has a barn-like structure that serves as a modern museum and theater.

Visitors will find a large collection of his books, writings, films, speeches, and personal items. The third building on site is the original Burns Springs one-room African-American school, originally located in Epworth. The yard surrounding the home site is reminiscent of a 1900s era sharecropper homestead that includes a cedar post clothes line, wash pot with rinsing tubs, chopping block, tree swing, old well, an original outhouse, and a family garden. The homestead is accented with a cotton field.

Cokesbury College Tour & Ice Cream Social

  • Cokesbury College

The Cokesbury College Historical & Recreational Commission, will provide tours of Cokesbury College from 1:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Visitors will see all the recent restoration efforts, both inside and outside of the College building.

Commissioners, acting as tour guides, will discuss the Commission’s short and long-range plans for enhancing access to and community use of the College and grounds.  In addition, Commissioners will discuss planned restoration of other elements of the Cokesbury Community, including the Chapel and the original General Store and Post Office buildings which are located across the street from the College.

Cokesbury College was built in 1854 and opened as one of the earliest Masonic Female Collegiate Institutes in the rural southeast.  Cokesbury College is the centerpiece of the original 19th century utopian Cokesbury Community.  The College building and grounds are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and are maintained and managed by the Cokesbury College Historical and Recreational Commission.

Historic Cokesbury College
Although Cokesbury feels a bit “off the beaten path” today, it was once one of the most prominent communities in the upper part of South Carolina. At its peak, it was a thriving hub of education for the entire state, and many influential South Carolinians called it home. From Tabernacle to Cokesbury The story of Cokesbury began when visionaries in the Tabernacle Community decided to build a new school. After much deliberation, a public meeting was held on July 4, 1824 to promote the idea of develop-ing a new village around the new school’s location. The name of the new village: Mount Ariel.

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
