*RIBBON-CUTTING FOR NEWLY RENOVATED HERITAGE ROOM AT CYPRESS GARDENS*

Cypress Gardens will hold a ribbon-cutting and re-opening ceremony for the newly renovated Heritage Room at 4 p.m. on Monday, November 8 at 3030 Cypress Gardens Road in Moncks Corner. The public is invited to attend.

Like many facilities in the park, the Heritage Room was severely damaged by the historic floods in 2015. A renovated Cypress Gardens reopened in April 2019, but the Heritage Room remained closed, still in need of an extensive overhaul project.

The Heritage Room renovation project began on July 1, 2021. Crews worked to not only brighten up the space but also keep the original cypress tongue-in-groove on the walls. To allow the facility to serve as the original “museum”-style room with artifacts and educational videos, renovations also included the installation of a new projector and 120-inch projector screen for presentations, along with the addition of four new 65-inch televisions. Curtains were also installed on either side of the room as an option to cover up the displays and televisions during events and/or meetings.

The renovations consisted of demolition, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and interior finish work—with a small portion of the interior demolition performed in-house immediately after the 2015 flood. Satchel Construction performed the remainder of the interior renovations and Carrier Construction performed the metal roof panel screw replacement.

Total cost of the renovation project was approximately $215,000. Funding stemmed from a matching S.C. Parks, Recreation and Tourism (SCPRT) grant.

“We have long-awaited this exciting day, when the park’s final facility, damaged from the 2015 floods, is fully renovated. Crews have remarkably restored the Heritage Room to its pre-flood glory; and we look forward to again sharing this exclusive space with the community, providing priceless educational opportunities and sharing our unique and valuable County history.” -Heather McDowell, Berkeley County Parks & Recreation Director
