Kalmia Gardens

Reviewed By Brad B - Okatie, South Carolina, United States

We walked these gardens while in Hartsville to see the "RenoFest Bluegrass Festival". The nature walk is excellent, especially the wooden walkways. Unfortunately, it was too early in the season (March) for most anything to be in bloom. We imagined that the gardens would be excellent when all of the flowers are in bloom. There weren't any mosquitoes present, but I'd bet that once the warmer weather arrives, there will be plenty. Bug spray, or whatever, would probably be a good thing to have on hand with you during the buggy season.

Hartsville Museum

Reviewed By WorthSC - SC

This small but interesting museum is located in what was once the post office. It was later used as the library before becoming the county museum. The building itself is beautiful, both inside and out. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the exhibits are very nice and well done, including the signage. I especially enjoyed the exhibit about the late professional baseball player Bobo Newsome, a Hartsville native. Recently there was an excellent TV documentary on Mr. Newsome and two other baseball greats from SC, Shoeless Joe Jackson and Van Lingle Mungo. It was nice to see Newsome baseball cards and other items of interest in the exhibit. It does not take very long to see everything in the museum, but it was definitely worth the drive. The entire Hartsville area is lovely and folks are friendly.
