The South Carolina Tobacco Museum

Welcome to the South Carolina Tobacco Museum

The City of Mullins sprang from the growing, harvesting, and selling of tobacco beginning in 1894. Proving that tobacco and farm life was the life-blood of the community, Mullins grew to become the largest tobacco market in South Carolina at one time. The Museum, which opened in August 1998, focuses on the growth of tobacco and rural farm life prior to 1950.

Located in the heart of downtown Mullins, SC in the historic train depot. Various exhibits include models of tobacco plants at each growth stage, a blacksmith shop, a log tobacco barn filled with cured tobacco, a farm kitchen filled with vintage equipment, and a photo gallery featuring current tobacco practices by Brant Barrett. The Mullins Room pays homage to our town’s birth and rapid expansion with the railroad and tobacco. Our Reggie McDaniel Media Room features a 15-minute video featuring interviews with warehousemen and farmers recounting the days when tobacco was “king”.
