The Palmetto Area Council was organized in 1935 as a values-based youth development organization that serves Spartanburg, Chester, Cherokee, Lancaster, Union, and York Counties.
Scope and Content Note
The Palmetto Area Council Boy Scouts of America Records is a source of boy scouting records in the upstate area of South Carolina during the twentieth century. While the Palmetto Area Council was organized in 1935, records of boy scouting in the area begin earlier and continue until the late 1960s. The collection consists of a brief history of the council, newspaper clippings, photographs, certificate of election, minutes of an organizational meeting, annual reports, a trust fund brochure and program for 1938 testimonial dinner. These records give a brief overview of the history of the Palmetto Area Council. They are a valuable resource in understanding the Boy Scout movement in South Carolina.
The Palmetto Area Council Boy Scouts of America Records were deposited with the Archives on September 21,1978 by Palmetto Area Council Boy Scouts of America via Robert E. Justice.
