Note: On the date that the Two RV Gypsies were here, the garden was only open for trail use with Social Distancing in effect. Every other parking space was coned off. All visitor facilities were closed including rest rooms and the picnic area.

However, since sirens sounded off just as the two RV Gypsies parked their car, they remained in their car for about 1-1/2 hour or so until the major thunderstorm passed. By then, all the other cars and people had left, and the two RV Gypsies had the gardens to themselves.

The Bob Campbell Geology Museum features more than 10,000 rocks, minerals and fossils and has exhibits focused on geological and paleontological topics. (closed on this date due to the Coronavirus).

The gardens are the home of the historic Hanover House, which is an early 18th-century house built in the South Carolina Low Country and moved to the Clemson campus. It also has a pioneer village featuring the Hunt Log Cabin, which was originally built about 1825 in the Seneca, South Carolina area.
