A friend, Linda Williams, sent following message to some city leaders recently. She talks about local museums: "We loved the Pickens County History museum. We thoroughly enjoyed the Calhoun Co. museum in St. Matthews. We were blown away by the museum in Elloree. (Yes, the little town of Elloree.) And those are the only places we’ve gone so far!
We need a Rock Hill museum. It could be located in a big vacated building downtown. It could include the history of the Whites, Blacks, and other founders, the story of Glencairn Garden and Come-See-Me, the bleachery and other industrial sites, the Anderson car, the Friendship Nine, a Vernon Grant story with lots of pictures, the telephone museum, Winthrop, the birth of Knowledge Park, war heroes and military leaders, etc. – many stories under one roof. Then visitors could go out and learn more at the different sites.
