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.

Throughout the year the Arts and Heritage Center has several events that aid in supporting the Center. The Arts and Heritage Center is a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We rely solely upon these events, donations, memberships and grants to operate. We also have special member only events as well as lectures to increase your knowledge in regards to history and art.
