Andrew Jackson State Park
Andrew Jackson State Park combines history, art and community activities into a setting that has made it one of the state’s most popular parks.
Favorite features include living history programs, a museum and interactive exhibits that chronicle Jackson’s boyhood in the South Carolina backcountry. There’s even a birthday celebration every March in honor of America’s seventh president.
Among the park highlights are a striking statue of the “Boy of the Waxhaws” sculpted by Anna Hyatt Huntington, an 18th-century replica schoolhouse and more.
Other park attractions include an 18th-century replica schoolhouse, campground and picnic facilities, fishing lake and nature trails.
