Please join us as we welcome this month's guest speaker, John Perkins, the executive director of the Pendleton Historical Foundation, as he presents "Historic Homes of Pendleton".

During the early 19th century Pendleton became the summer residence to several of South Carolina's most prominent families.

John will lead you back in time to explore the diverse history and cultural heritage of Pendleton's Woodburn House, Ashtabula, and The Jenkins House.

He will introduce you to the families that built and called the properties home. He will discuss the artifacts and antiques currently on display, the agricultural and medical significance of the properties and may even share a ghost story or two....plus John loves to give away door prizes.... so come join us!

Light refreshments will be provided.
