We are fully into the dog days of summer and most of us just want to hunker down and stay inside in our cool homes. However, there is a wonderful, cool and lovely facility you can visit called the Arts and Heritage Center. Not only does it offer a space to be cool, but the chance to visit the permanent history exhibit Rivers, Roads and Rails and to view the wonderful Historic Sites of North Augusta exhibit, plus a chance to shop for unique gifts in the gift shop. The second floor gallery has an exhibit of the Sno-Cap drive in’s 50th anniversary.
Need I remind you of the wonderful Aiken County History Museum located in Aiken, which offers outstanding displays of our area, or our Nancy Carson Library, which will also give you a place to sit down and relax and be cool plus pick up a book or two to read?
Step out the door and visit these places for a change of pace and chance to enjoy some of the places and things Aiken County has to offer its citizens.
Keep art in your life and a smile on your face till next time.
