Organizer Graham's Historic Farm

Organizer of The American Heritage Festival - February 19-20, 2022

Graham's Historic Farm has been in the family since William Graham founded it in 1738. Original documents show that the farm actively supplied food for the Continental Army during the war, and was also used as a stop-over camp site for Patriot forces, including Francis Marion's brigade of partisans and captured British troops. Graham's farm played an important role in support of Patriot forces during the "dark days" of the southern campaign. The farm remains in the Graham family today. All of the period buildings have been lost to time, but the farmland itself remains in active use, and the site is largely untouched by modern intrusions.
