Built in 1740, The Broom Place is located in the heart of the Historic Boykin district. Brooms are made on the original broom equipment (more than 100 years old) inside a one-room restored former slave house. Some of the original boards and furnishings remain. The area was living quarters for the slaves who worked on the farms and at the water-powered flour and grits mill. Watch the craftsman make brooms as they were made many years ago. You can still purchase handmade brooms, made on the 100-year-old equipment.
