Visit the Village Museum

McClellanville has a hidden jewel that is worth looking for.  The Village Museum, tucked away between the Town Hall budand the Town Playground, was started in 1999 and director Bud Hill has turned his little project into one of the best small museums around.  The museum chronicles the history of the entire St. James Santee area from the original Native American inhabitants through today.  There are many well crafted, informative exhibits.

The museum is located at 401 Pinckney Street in McClellanville, near the end of Pinckney Street.   Hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10 am- 5 pm (Closed 12-1 for lunch, Bud’s gotta eat).

There is a moderate fee to enter the museum, but members enter free.  Joining the museum has other benefits including the annual oyster roast.  This years oyster roast is going to be November 7th starting at 6 pm.  Its not too late to join and participate in this annual tradition under the Town Hall.

This weekend, Saturday October 24th, 2009 at 7:00 pm at the McClellanville Town Hall, the Village Museum presents a presentation by Dr. Walter Bonner, “Physicians and other Healers of St James, Santee Parish and McClellanville.”
