I found many things I didn't know about Hartsville at the museum. My son also likes history and was very interested in the things he found out. Will visit again as exhibits do change from time to time.

Wonderful museum with artifacts and the story of Hartsville. A very nice small southern town that is rich in history. The curators have done a marvelous job in telling the story behind the town.
