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 growing of tobacco and rural farm life prior to 1950.

Museum includes:

  • A display showing the complete growing cycle and production of tobacco through to auction.
  • Tobacco-related equipment, a wagon, re-constructed pole barn, & blacksmith tools.
  • Special Exhibits
