Sixty years of history
Peays Ferry Road Marker Web

For the past 60 years, the Kershaw County Historical Society has been collecting, conserving and sharing the history of the county. The idea for the society began in early 1954 when a group of history-minded citizens gathered in the Camden home of Allison and Belle DuBose to explore the idea of reviving a county historical society. In 1901, while Kirkland and Kennedy were still writing their Historic Camden, Colonial and Revolutionary, such a county society was formed, but it had lasted only a few years.
