The museum portrays rural life when the Town of Elloree was founded by William J. Snider. Visitors experience a tour of Cleveland Street as it appeared in 1990 with recreated stores, a bank, and a hotel. They also explore a cotton gin, learn how cotton is grown, picked, and ginned today, and see the 18th century Snider Cabin, plus much more. All who visit the museum are inspired by the history that is so masterfully exhibited and soon come to understand why our town is named Elloree, the Native American word for "The Home I Love".
