The county of Lancaster, South Carolina, sits within the lands once held by the Catawba Indian Nation. The current Catawba Reservation lies about 15 miles from the campus of USC Lancaster. With strong geographical and historical ties to the Catawba, USC Lancaster has begun to develop curricular and public programs focused on Native American art and culture, with a special emphasis on the Catawba and other Native communities in South Carolina. The gardens are a site on the SC Ag + Art Tour. Open Tuesdays through Sundays, and Mondays by appointment. Admission is free.
