Part of the original town plan, the green is the site of a remarkable collection of 19th century public buildings all surrounded by charming turn-of-the-century commercial buildings. The Town Hall (c. 1858), Market Hall (c. 1837), and the Inglis-McIver Law Office (c.1830) join the Cheraw Lyceum Museum built around 1820 which houses exhibits on Cheraw's history (Free admission). The keys for the museum may be picked up at the Chamber of Commerce office, Mon.-Fri. A Pee Dee River Artifacts Museum Room is just adjacent on the north side; the Theatre on the Green (c. 1920) on the south side of Market Street. Cheraw.
