2015-09-11 10.34.01The Morris Center For Lowcountry Heritage Grand Opening: The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce The Morris Center For Lowcountry Heritage Grand Opening.  The Chamber was proud to be a part of the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in Ridgeland on Friday.  The Morris Center is an innovative heritage center in the newly renovated 1937 Sinclair Service Station located at 10782 S. Jacob Smart Blvd. in Ridgeland, South Carolina. Located in the heart of downtown Ridgeland on U.S. 17, the Daniel O. Morris Center For Lowcountry Heritage is a learning and exhibition center dedicated to preserving and nurturing the history, culture and spirit of Jasper County and surrounding counties. Housed in a collection of vintage buildings, with the architecturally distinctive Sinclair Service Station as its focal point, the center will feature ever changing exhibitions, interactive and dynamic learning opportunities, cultural offerings, storytelling and other art forms. The center is made possible from a trust left by the late Daniel “Danny” Morris, an entrepreneur and community leader who was active in the historical preservation, education and economic development of the area he called home. For more information about The Daniel O. Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage, please visit Morrisheritagecenter.org.
