Lest We Forget

— South Carolina National Heritage Corridor —

Built in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the "Old Rock Building" was constructed from rock found at nearby historic Stumphouse Tunnel. The building is owned by Oconee County. Before becoming the home to the Oconee Veteran's Museum, this building housed many county offices.

Oconee County is home to thousands of veterans who have served or are currently serving in the military. The museum stands to honor them and offers an opportunity for visitors to see first hand what veterans have contributed and often sacrificed for our country, our freedom and the world.

Inside the museum, historically significant military conflicts are arranged in chronological order beginning with the Revolutionary War. Military uniforms, equipment, weapons, documents, photographs and artwork are on display for visitors. A library features biographies, novels, reference materials concerning military history and also personal albums that have been donated by local veterans.

Patriots Hall is committed to recognizing the brave men and women from all branches of the military. Their stories represent tireless integrity, honor and pride in being an American soldier.
