The REVIVA Museum and Visitor Center, located at 106 Broad St., in Iva, SC, is the site of another addition to the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail. Sponsored by the Iva Community Improvement Association, the quilt pattern is known as an “Eight Point Star”. The association chose the colors of the rainbow for their quilt – red, blue, sunshine yellow and green. It certainly shows up well on that street corner, thanks to the Little River Electric Cooperative who installed the quilt for them.
Yvonne McGee, Chairman of REVIVA, told us, “Many of our older quilters, most of whom have passed away, made quilts using this star design. Our oldest, Mrs. Ora Dunn, lived to be 105. Her daughter and granddaughter are still quilting.”
The REVIVA Museum and Visitor Center is located just one block off of Highway 81, and is visible from the South Carolina Heritage Corridor, of which the UHQT is a part.
