  • Native American Celebration

    November 16, 2024 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

    Every November, the Hagood Mill Historic Site observes Native American Heritage Month.  This celebration of cornbread (Selu meaning corn and gadu meaning bread) is really a Harvest Festival.  This is the time of year when Native Americans reaped the harvest of corn.  This was an essential crop in Native American life and came to be in Colonial life as well.

    Join us as we give thanks to, and honor the first peoples of these lands, for the food traditions and customs that have influenced southern Appalachian life for hundreds of years.  At this event, we will bring together many people from various tribal groups to share customs and traditions that have been practiced since ancient times.  

    Demonstrations unique to this event include the stone grinding of cornmeal, cooking fry-bread, and roasting corn.  Prehistoric cooking demonstrations using ancient soapstone bowls is something you won't want to miss.  We will also have an expert on hand to identify Native American stone tools and artifacts, so be sure to bring your treasures to be identified.

    While on site, don't miss "Our Native Roots: An Interpretive Trail."  This path takes visitors along the Old Indian Path which took Native Americans from the Mississippi Coast through the Eastern Continental Divide to Virginia.  The trail includes a dugout canoe demonstration, a sacred fire circle, the prehistoric petroglyphs that are on site, and many other experiences. 

    This really is an event you won't want to miss!

  • Ed Harrison Memorial Celtic Christmas

    December 21, 2024 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

    The music of the Appalachian region was heavily influenced by the influx of the Scotch and Irish immigrants, and this influence has been integral in the development of American folk music traditions.  With Christmas approaching and the New Year beckoning, it is time once again to honor the musical traditions of the area by listening to songs of the season.

    This event is held in memory of Ed Harrison, a beloved member of the Hagood Mill Family.  

    The Heritage Pavilion is decorated for the season.  Our traditional-arts demonstrators and artisan merchants are set up in this covered and heated area so you can shop as you listen.  Weather permitting, a bonfire will be lit and s'mores will be available for purchase.

    Be sure to bring the kids so they can keep an eye out for our favorite person of the season, Santa Claus!  He always takes some time out of his busy schedule to stop by to visit with our guests and listen to great music!

  • Deep Winter Blues

    February 15, 2025 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

      Upcountry South Carolina is a historical Mecca for the blues. Throughout the 1920's and 1930's the streets of Laurens County, Greenville, Spartanburg, & Anderson reverberated with the music of bluesman/street-preachers as they were strolling with their tin cups extended. Many of these musicians became famous on the streets of New York City in the folk revival of the 50's & 60's. It is this tradition that we celebrate each February at the Hagood Mill Historic Site.
