About Us

AHC Exterior | AHC History
The mission of the Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta is to provide an educational venue to showcase and promote the arts and history of our region.

The Arts & Heritage Center is the outgrowth from two North Augusta non-profit organizations.

The Heritage Council of North Augusta works with the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor to preserve and promote the history of the North Augusta area. They have monthly programs on local history, have produced three historical books, placed historical markers in the community, and recently erected the James U. Jackson monument.

The Cultural Arts Council sponsors an outdoor summer music series and other concerts such as the Veteran's Day Concert, art shows and competitions, a children's theater program, provides grants to teachers to enhance arts exposure in the schools, sponsors North Augusta Idol, and co-sponsors the Yellow Jasmine Festival. The North Augusta Artists Guild, an additional arts group, is an outgrowth of the Cultural Arts Council. For more information visit us at www.NAArtsCouncil.org

The Arts and Heritage Center supports many of the activities of both groups and other groups with similar interests and activities. To clearly define management and financial responsibilities, The Arts and Heritage Center has been established as a separate 501c3 non-profit group with its own Board of Directors. The Board consists of three representatives each from the Heritage and Cultural Arts Councils, a representative from the Artists Guild, and 18 other individuals from the community.

On the first floor, The Arts and Heritage Center has two large rooms for exhibits and displays, a reception area, storage facilities, a gift shop, and an office. The second floor has a balcony display area and an observation area to look down into the first floor galleries.

Heritage Corridor | AHC History
With the help of the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor a permanent history exhibit was installed in the Center in July of 2011. This exhibit showcases the history of the four county region of Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell, and Orangeburg. In addition there will be rotating exhibits highlighting art, photography, pottery, and historical information.
In accordance with IRS Section 6104 the Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta's forms 1023 and 990
are available for public inspection on request by contacting John Bigger at (803) 278-1805.
