Located in Chester, SC, the Chester County Historical Society was formed in the 1960s to preserve the significant historical artifacts of Chester County. The Historical Society’s museum includes collections such as Chester County genealogical materials, agriculture machinery from the 1800s, and extensive photos from Chester resident, Henry O. Nichols. The museum was formerly housed in a basement room of the courthouse until 1981 when it was moved to the permanent location in the county’s old jail house. The museum is a volunteer, non-profit organization. Find more at
