ABOUT THE MUSEUM
Easley Area Museum, Inc. began existence in January 2015, with the purpose of creating a physical presence in the Easley area for gathering, displaying and preserving the history of the town and its surrounding communities and of providing opportunities for that history to be shared with its citizens and visitors.
Many projects for exhibit, display artifacts, documents, antique pieces and photographs are already obtained; however, we are searching for much more. We are extremely interested in having items donated to us from the community.
In addition to display items, a project is underway to preserve the oral history of our community as well. Depending on funding and receipt of grants, the scope of the project will include videotaped conversations with some of the town’s oldest citizens to capture their experiences and stories of life growing up in and around Easley. Collecting and documenting these first-hand accounts of history will be an invaluable asset to our museum.
The local community, either groups or individuals, is our main source of funding and support.
