About This Show

The Fall Line is a geographic region within South Carolina where the rivers are no longer navigable from the Low Country. Historically, this area, which stretches from Cheraw on the Pee Dee River to Hamburg (present day North Augusta) on the Savannah River, yielded experiences and material culture that were characteristic of its peoples.

In 2002, ten Midlands-area museums, archives, and libraries formed the South Carolina Fall Line Consortium in order to identify, research, and interpret the material culture made and used between 1740 and 1945 specific to this region. From the Pee Dee to the Savannah: Enduring Legacies of South Carolina’s Fall Line Region marks the Consortium’s first major exhibition showcasing the stories and artifacts of this previously understudied and underappreciated region of the Palmetto State. Joining Dr. Edgar to talk about the exhibition are SC State Museum Curator of Art Paul Matheny and John Sherrer, Historic Columbia Foundation Director of Collections and Interpretation.
