Located in the historic Whitehead Infirmary building, Lynches Lake Historical Society is keeping the love of local history alive in Lake City! “Lynches Lake” was a geographical designation on plats & maps during the Colonial era, before there were many named towns. Lynches Lake was frequently cited as home to many patriots in Francis Marion’s brigade, with modern day Lake City located at the western tip of the northern branch of Lynches Lake. Lynches Lake Historical Society offers many programs for the history lover, including the Lynches Lake Museum that features artifacts from the Native American period to the 1950’s. The Research Center has a library of microfilm, plats, deeds, wills, church & school records, and city council meeting minutes, all of which could aid a researcher.  LLHS offers historical tours such as “Lies & Legends”, and educational events including Pee Dee Back Country Day and History Fields.
