Here you get a dose of history before combining an interpretive nature trail in the Sumter National Forest and a trail leading to Station Cove Falls. Originally a military compound and later a trading post, Oconee Station State Historic Site gives a glimpse into what life was like in the 1700 and 1800s. The stone blockhouse, called the Station House, was used as an outpost by the South Carolina militia from 1792 until 1799. Th e larger William Richards House (named for the Irish immigrant who built the house) served as a family home from 1805 until the park service acquired the land in 1976.
