Archiving the Nation's Steeplechase Racing Tradition
Welcome to The National Steeplechase Museum, situated on the grounds of historic Springdale Race Course in Camden, South Carolina. We are the only Museum in the United States dedicated solely to steeplechasing — from its beginnings in the British Isles to its evolution in America.
The Museum pays tribute to the incredible athletes, equine and human, who have made this a wonderful and exciting sport.
