The H. Flowe Trexler Region 3 Discovery Center has a number of interesting things for the tourist passing through the area, including a visitors' center with a gift shop and a coffee shop. This building also features a railroad-oriented museum with historical data and artifacts from Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell, and Orangeburg Counties. Next door is the Agricultural Heritage Museum, which tells the story of farm life in this rural community throughout the centuries. Outside, you can find several picnic areas among the large trees
