Like many small towns and communities across America, North Augusta was on the brink of losing its distinctive character to the forces of commerce and enterprise. Change in the streetscape of America is inevitable and, in many cases, desirable. The streets and buildings that give character to a neighborhood, however, are part of a community heritage that should be passed from one generation to the next.
The Olde Towne Preservation Association came into being in 1991 to help preserve the heritage and character of a slice of North Augusta. The organization has been instrumental in doing that but it has done much more. Olde Towne has evolved into a community based association working to enhance the quality of life for the people of North Augusta, Aiken County, and the Greater Central Savannah River Area (CSRA).
From the development of the Living History Park where school children witness history firsthand through living exhibits and demonstrations of colonial life, to participating in the Christmas Parade, members of Olde Towne participate in many activities which benefit the people of the area.The Living History Park serves citizens from a two state area (South Carolina and Georgia). During the school year the park is used by area teachers as a teaching tool. This 7.5 acre park with natural springs provides for the children hands-on educational experience into the history of our area.
Over 20,000 people visit the park throughout the year. The park is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. All events are free. The Living History Park is managed by Olde Towne Preservation Association, a 501c non-profit organization.
The Living History Park is located at 299 W. Spring Grove Avenue in North Augusta, South Carolina.
