After passing through the entrance to Tamassee DAR School, visitors drive over an old bridge and catch a glimpse of the beautiful rapids. 

Chapel bells chime on the hour at Tamassee. 

The auditorium is one of Tamassee's historic buildings.  

No one can leave Tamassee without spending a few quiet moments in the Margaret Lipscomb Garden.
