The Cayce Historical Museum presents the legacy and history of the Old Saxe Gotha, Granby, and Cayce areas. The focal point of the museum is a reconstruction of the Trading Post established by James Chestnut and Joseph Kershaw at Granby Village in 1765. Granby was an important river trading market (established 50 years before Columbia in 1733) on the Congaree River. With the eventual growth of Columbia as the capital, Granby gradually declined as a community.

Cayce Historical Museum
Six exhibit areas -- Trading Post Room, Saxe Gotha/Granby Room, Emily Geiger Room, Victorian Room, Cayce Room and Visitors Center -- emphasize periods of Indians, Colonial activity and trade, agricultural development and transportation in the area. Kids will love the big red caboose!

The Granby Gardens Park and Granby Botanical Gardens are in the same complex, offering a stream, picnic tables, and a playground. Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day!
