Preserve, Restore, and Remember

Historic Hagood-Mauldin House

Welcome to the Pickens County Historical Society website. 
Return often for current events and project updates 
from the historic heart of the Upcountry.


"Together, we make history here..."


We are chartered for the purpose of perpetuating and disseminating the 
historical knowledge, artifacts, and heritage from pre-historic times to 
the present and protecting historically significant structures, places, and 
elements of Pickens County and South Carolina. Founded in 1958, the 
Pickens County Historical Society is an active, community-engaged 
organization of over eight hundred members.

Partnering with numerous other organizations and government agencies, 
we are involved in many projects that benefit the people and interests of 
our region. We encourage your interest, support, and membership.





...With an avowed goal of “preserving and promoting 
all things related to the history and character
of our special place,”
the Pickens County Historical
Society strives
“to increase awareness of who we
are and from where we have come.”


The society was organized in 1958 by Pickens County leaders. The
Old Gaol, which is now the Pickens County Historical Museum, was the
early headquarters of the PCHS. Over the past 55 years, the organization
has grown to be the largest county historical society not only in South
Carolina but also in the entire southern United States.
