100 Berrie Rd. SW Aiken
The Clifford S. Gerde Carriage Museum
Dedicated in September of 1992, the carriage museum is located on the Rye Patch estate, adjacent to Hopelands Gardens, at 100 Berrie Road. It exhibits nine carriages that were once used for trips to the market, outings around town, commutes to and from work, leisurely travel, and even pony breaking. Each carriage has been restored, some by Mr. Clifford Gerde himself, who was founding member of the Aiken Driving Club. Visitors and locals alike are invited to learn more about travel in the era before horsepower came from an engine.
Sundays, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. April – November
