The Colleton Museum is a local natural and cultural history museum. At the moment we are crammed into a small space with few personel and even fewer opportunities to properly interpret the artifacts in our care. We would like to see the museum inhabit a larger space with properly curated exhibits that capture the unique history of the Colleton County Lowcountry of South Carolina.

The arboretum is a Roper Mountain location that is lovely year-round, but it is especially glorious when the azaleas and Carolina jessamine are blooming in the spring. First established in 1987, the arboretum displays landscape specimens and identifies them with markers that show both the botanical name and common name for each plant.
