The museum may be small, but the amount of knowledge and artifacts contained inside could fill volumes of books. The museum is run by the Saluda County Historical Society volunteers. The people are knowledgeable about most all of the artifacts contained within the walls. Admission is free. You can donate if you feel the need, but are in no way... More

Members of the Saluda County Historical Society have done a magnificent job restoring this beautiful, historic log house. To walk in this house is to walk through history. To know that James Butler Bonham and his family lived here, to learn about their history and their contributions to both South Carolina and Texas, as well as to the world, is... More

Took a group of school children and these folks bent over backwards to help. It is a small museum, but worth seeing. They also have several historic properties like the Marsh-Johnson house which has been lovingly restored and the Butler-Bonham house. The theater next door belongs to them and they use it for community functions. Just super nice folks.

The Saluda County Museum, operated by the Saluda County Historical Society, contains a wealth of information about the area. Particularly noteworthy is Saluda's connection to Texas. This is the birthday place of James Butler Bonham and William Barret Travis, both of whom died defending the Alamo. The Society operates Flat Grove, the house in which Bonham was born. There is...
