Native American Studies Center In Lancaster Reopens Full Time

LANCASTER, S.C. — The University of South Carolina Lancaster’s Native American Studies Center will reopen its doors to visitors on a normal operating schedule beginning Tuesday, August 24th.

Officials say this announcement comes after the Center was closed to the public for a year and then operated on a limited basis, by appointment only, for almost five months.

The Center will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to a news release.

Officials say the Center will also be open on Mondays by appointment only and closed on Sundays.

Per university policy, masks will be required for entry. Officials say guests are encouraged to use the hand sanitizing stations located at the building entrances as well as social distance themselves from others.

To maintain social distancing and safety protocols, officials say advance reservations are required for larger tour groups (walk-in groups without appointments will be limited to 10 people).
