Center Church
Oakway, SC OHC has recently acquired historic Center Church in Oakway with the intent to restore and interpret the c.1870 property.

The Jake Sluder Heritage Park located next to OHC features a memorial brick walkway, heirloom vegetable garden, native plants and three outdoor exhibit pieces: The Manly Mobile Jail, Hardie-Tynes Steam Engine, and Verner Wellhouse.

The Louise Russell Alexander Children's Corner is a creative space for children to discover and explore the heritage of Oconee County.
