Annual Dave Day Celebration | Aiken County Historical Museum

Date: July 17, 2021 | Time: 11am | Location: Aiken County Historical Museum

We are so glad to be able to host this event again after missing it for the first time last year. This is a celebration of the life of Edgefield potter, David Drake, also known as Dave the Potter. Bring your children for a lesson in clay working, a fun craft, and a special tour of the pottery hall. This program, generously sponsored by Aiken’s own Major General Irene Trowell-Harris, is free for Aiken County children; register by email at lwalker@aikencountysc.gov.

Banksia After Dark: Virtual Villains

Join us on Friday, October 16 at 7PM for “Spooky Tours: Virtual Villains.” This Zoom event consists of both live and pre-recorded videos of folks regaling you with the macabre stories from Aiken County’s past.

Just a heads up, these stories are at times gruesome and involve sensitive topics. There are no happy endings here… but there are fascinating stories to be told.

Tickets for the Zoom event are $10/household. The viewing is limited to 100 households. Proceeds benefit the Aiken County Historical Museum. A link to the Zoom meeting will be emailed as part of your ticket purchase.
