Come explore the past and present of the Pendleton District
- and perhaps see a bit of the future!

Cherokee Indians lived in this region long before the American Revolution.   It was the Cherokee's choice to side with Great Britain during the war for independence, which led to the loss of their land in what is now the northwest corner of South Carolina.

Two months of fighting in the summer of 1776 between the Patriot militia and the Cherokees, aided by Loyalists, brought Indian defeat. By 1789 this region became Pendleton County, later named Pendleton District. Today that area is
Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties, but a common bond remains.
