A Museum with Turkeys Everywhere!
The ONLY turkey museum in the world
The National Wild Turkey Federation Museum (NWTF) in Edgefield, SC is the only museum in the world dedicated to wild turkey restoration, management, and hunting. This comeback story is told through interactive exhibits and simulators, models and animatronics, including a life-like grandpa in a rocking chair sharing his story.
Also on site is the Palmetto Shooting Complex, a premier shooting destination in the Southeast. The facility houses two dedicated sporting clays courses, five trap and skeet fields, 3D archery and the 9,300-square-foot pavilion.
Walk Where Heroes Were Forged
Explore historic Revolutionary War sites
In the 18th century, South Carolina’s Old 96 District figured prominently in the South as an agricultural stronghold, and later as a strategic battleground in the Revolutionary War. The South’s first land battle of the war still stands as the Ninety Six National Historic Site. Peek into the still-standing Star Fort, or observe the beauty of the Carolinian piedmont at the Musgrove Mill State Historic Site. Wander the hiking and walking trails while connecting with both nature and our country’s past.
