Permanent Exhibits

The Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta (AHCNA) is a partner in the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor. As part of this partnership, the AHCNA has assumed ownership of the regional history exhibits from the SCNHCs former Discovery Center in Blackville, SC. By using these educational and technological exhibits, the visitor is introduced to the corridor, regional destinations and the region's character and history. The exhibits interpret Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell and Orangeburg counties.
