South Carolina Botanical Garden

The South Carolina Botanical Garden is a 270 acre garden located in Clemson, South Carolina, near the Clemson University Campus. It has grown considerably from its original 40 acre size. There are many garden areas here, including the Class of '39 Caboose Garden, a butterfly garden, a conifer collection, and a very beautiful Meditation Garden which has a waterfall, gazebo, and pool.

There are a couple of other interesting things on the grounds, including a Geology Museum, and cabin built in 1716, known as the Hanover House.

The garden is open daily from dawn to dusk. Admission is free.

  2. quite lovely and no doubt the Clemson campus is good for a stroll too. Very nice.

  3. Free admission! I'm on my way. Thanks for sharing this lovely place, Sherry.


  4. I wonder where the funds come from to support a lovely place like this?
