Andrew Jackson State Park is named for the former president who lived most of his young life in this area and is honored by a statue created by Anna Hyatt Huntington, which is located a short distance from the park office. As a famous sculptress with a summer home nearby, Anna made the statue of the young president and gave it to the children of South Carolina to commemorate this legendary leader. The land that houses the park was given to the state of South Carolina by the county in the 1950s. The 360-acre facility contains a museum (which documents the lives of early settlers), a campground, a playground, a meetinghouse, a boat dock, and a lake stocked with bass, brim, and catfish.
