Mullins is a city in Marion County, South Carolina, in the United States. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 5,029. Incorporated on March 4, 1872, Mullins was named after Col. William S. Mullins, who served as a representative for Marion County in the South Carolina State Legislature from 1852 to 1866.
Mullins has four bed & breakfasts and lots of great dining.  We are less than an hour from Myrtle Beach and only thirty minutes from Florence. Plan a day trip to visit us in a quaint small town. You might decide to stay.  From our humble beginnings in 1872, Mullins has become home to South Carolina's largest tobacco market. With the establishment of a train depot, the city grew and expanded to its present population of more than 5,000. Mullins is home to the South Carolina Tobacco Museum, located in the historic depot. The Museum features permanent exhibits on farm life prior to 1950 with an emphasis on the production of tobacco.   Click here for more information about the museum and its hours.
Marion County Medical Center opened in 1997. The facility, located between Mullins and Marion, has state-of-the-art technology with all major medical specialties represented and 130 beds. In addition to the Bed & Breakfasts, three local motels serve city visitors. Churches of all major faiths are represented in Mullins. The Golden Leaf Festival takes place yearly on the Fourth Saturday of September. The festival features entertainment and a nostalgic "Afternoon in the Park" takes place with original arts & crafts on sale.
