Creating the Carolinas Exhibit

Have you ever wondered how the borders of South Carolina were created? The story of South Carolina’s boundaries began 400 years ago when kings, political deals, Indian treaties, and misguided surveying helped create our state lines.  Learn how our troublesome state boundaries evolved over the centuries.

Look for our new South Carolina & North Carolina Borders exhibit in the USC Lancaster Native American Studies Center.  The exhibit will be on display until June 2014.
