I grew up in Henderson County and never knew some of the facts about it. In the turn of the century Hendersonville was the oasis for the people from the beach. Railroad trains full of people from Charleston came here in the summer. Large hotels doted the town. Movie Stars came here- Ronald Reagan- famous boxers, you name it. =

We went into the courthouse to use the bathrooms, and stumbled upon this wonderful history museum. They had so many different interesting exhibits. We couldn't believe that this little town had so much to offer.
