    It was interesting to learn that in days gone by Mullins was the top business center for tobacco four years in a row. At one time, there were 41 warehouses serving as auction houses for the industry. ...  more »

    Situated inside the old train depot, the South Carolina Tobacco Museum is one of the best museums you'll find in South Carolina. Reggie McDaniel is the museum curator and is also the native born descendant of the man who started the town of Mullins, Steven Smith. Reggie walked me through the museum and explained in detail the entire process and history of the tobacco industry, which at one time was the backbone of the American economy. The museum is a time capsule of a lifestyle and industry that has fallen from grace. If you're in the area, it really is a wonderful place to visit with the scent of the drying tobacco leaves still lingering in the air.

    I'm tempted to write something snarky about the museum, like why would anyone want to commemorate the carcinogenic leaf, or that putting the institution in out-of-the-way Mullins, SC, must have been intended to keep it hidden from the world. (Mullins was once the largest distributor of tobacco in the nation.) But history is history and you have to admire the pluck of a place that wants to keep tobacco's story alive. Humans have consumed the substance for a long time.
