Collaborative Efforts Bring Historical Interpretive Wayside Exhibits to the City of Cayce

CAYCE, SC – The City of Cayce is excited to announce new interpretive wayside exhibits along the Cayce Riverwalk and 12,000 Year History Park for the public to learn from and enjoy. 

This was a collaborative effort between the City of Cayce, The River Alliance, South Carolina State Museum and the Central Carolina Community Foundation.


The Foundation awarded a $30,000 Connected Community grant, which was matched by $10,000 from City of Cayce hospitality tax funds, for the production and installation of these interpretive exhibits along the River at the 12,000 Year History Park. Exhibits were designed, produced and installed by the South Carolina State Museum.

Found along the Congaree River, the 12,000 Year History Park is 350 acres of ADA accessible trails, bridges and boardwalks with evidence of human habitation for over 12,000 years. Here, nature meets history.

The new interpretive wayside exhibits allow visitors to access the many layers of history of this unique place at their leisure.  Specifically, they highlight what happened right at the banks of the rivers as far back as 12,000 B.C. You can read about the Indigenous People, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and so much more!
