Special events are held from March through December at Ninety Six National Historic Site. The most popular are the Living History events in which reenactors dress and act as historical characters. These events usually take place one weekend each month. For a schedule of all events, check the National Park Service’s official Calendar web page the park.

Living History often centers around the Logan Log Cabin, which doubles as the “Black Swan Tavern” and sits to the right of the parking lot. It is believed to be the oldest house in Greenwood County. This is not its original site, as it was moved to Ninety Six National Historic Site in 1971. Oddly enough, it was found enclosed inside a modern house—somebody had actually built another house around it. The cabin was discovered when the modern house was slated to be torn down in 1967. When it first came to the park, it was used as the Visitor Center.

When not being used for Special Events, the cabin is closed, but the front door is open and visitors can look inside.
