History

The Bean Market was founded in 1936 by the Public Works Administration. A result of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal program, it was initially an agricultural hub. Farmers from miles around would come to sell their bean crops, which were then transported by traders to the north. This bean market helped maintain the local economy throughout the Great Depression and continued to operate until the 1960s. From then until the late 1990s, the market was used by the city for storage. In 1999, the site was purchased by The Community Museum Society Inc., whose members turned it into The National Bean Market Museum of South Carolina. It now functions as a center for the community, both for events and cultural activities.
