Upcountry History Museum
To promote, present and preserve the history of Upcountry South Carolina through education, research and service.
Upcountry South Carolina is bordered on the north by North Carolina, including the Piedmont section of the Appalachian Mountain chain; on the west by Georgia, and it extends to the central plains of South Carolina. Its fifteen counties include: Oconee, Pickens, Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee, York, Anderson, Laurens, Union, Chester, Abbeville, McCormick, Greenwood, Edgefield and Newberry. The rich heritage and culture of the ?Upcountry? identity distinguish the region from South Carolina?s ?Low Country.? This distinction began when the region was an Indian frontier and continues today as this political and economic hub is now identified as the ?Upstate.?
