How the Colleton Museum and Farmers Market came together:
It was a time when many counties, large and small, were tightening belts against the poor economy. In 2010, Colleton County chose to invest in the health and quality of life of its residents. Combining monies from State and Federal Grants and County Accommodations and Hospitality Taxes, Colleton County developed a multi-purpose facility that provides a home-base for the local farmers market, a meeting room available at a nominal fee for functions, parties, and local business training, and a dynamic new museum location celebrating the arts, culture, and history of this Lowcountry community. This facility is a comfortable, friendly, accessible space that reaches out to the community encouraging healthy eating; providing retail opportunities for local farmers; giving us all glimpses into the past through artifacts, documents, and stories; and bringing lessons about the plants and animals indigenous to the ACE Basin region of South Carolina. It is a great combination of commerce and camaraderie, of economics and education, of people and possibilities.
