Oconee Station State Historic Site

Walhalla, SC, United States, 29691

On Saturday August 11, 2018, Oconee Station State Historic Site will host a Frontier Encampment. The public is invited to travel back in time to the years immediately following the American Revolution when Oconee Station was a frontier outpost. Re-enactors will be on hand to interpret what life was like for the frontiersmen of this bygone era. The program will include a variety of period-related activities such as musket demonstrations, and cooking.

The program is appropriate for all ages. An adult must accompany those 12 and under. The program will be held 10a.m. to 3p.m. The event is free to the public.

The park just off S.C. Hwy/ 11 contains two historic structures: Oconee Station, a stone blockhouse used as an outpost by the S.C. State Militia from 1792 to 1799, and the William Richards House named for the Irish immigrant who ran a successful Indian trading post at the turn of the 19th century.
