Regional History Museum - Overview
The Spartanburg Regional History Museum has been in operation since 1961. The Museum recently relocated to the Chapman Cultural Center at 200 E. St. John Street on the second floor of the West Wing (also known as the Carlos Dupre Moseley building). For our long-time friends and frequent visitors, don't worry, your old favorites are still here. You can still see the permanent wave machine and the Pardo Stone, but all of our artifacts are now proudly presented in beautiful, professionally-designed exhibits. If you've never visited the Regional History Museum, it's time you did!
What's there to see and do?
Permanent exhibits at the Museum offer a walk through time from the early days of Spanish explorers like Juan Pardo to the late 20th century. While you're looking at the artifacts on this main exhibit table, don't miss out on the fact that the table is made from wood salvaged from Riverdale Mill. You will notice as you come up the stairs to enter the museum that the bell from Riverdale Mill is hanging in the entryway. While there is an exhibit area that focuses solely on Spartanburg County's rich textile heritage, evidence of that heritage is sprinkled throughout the exhibits.
