Explore Lexington’s History
As one of the original 13 colonies, South Carolina is full of history. Make sure the whole family is up-to-date on their local history with a day learning
about the area’s past in a fun way.
Get going with a morning hike through Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve on the western edge of Lexington County before it gets too hot out. There
you can see the only natural waterfall on the state’s coastal plain, plus native fossils and native plants, and the namesake Peachtree Rock.
Make your way back into downtown Lexington and grab a small bite to eat at the Root Cellar before stopping in at the Lexington Museum, which
showcases the town’s history back to the pre-Civil War era.
Did you know the Midlands has a strong Swiss and German heritage? It’s time for the best part of the day — a food tour with Two Gals and a Fork,
who will guide participants on a restaurant crawl of up to six restaurants along Main Street.
If you skipped the Lexington Museum earlier, no worries, the museum director will be on the tour, too, to share the history of the area and buildings!
