Kit Clues

Good luck finding the six bronze kits around downtown Aiken and discovering the locations they each hold dear.


Freight the Fox is a stickler for time, so you’d best make tracks before he departs.

Freight has access to all sorts of maps, brochures and tips for enjoying everything that Aiken has to offer.

And if you enjoy locomotive history as much as Freight does, don’t chugga-chugga-choo-choo to the next location without exploring the museum here.

Now that you’ve picked up steam, it’s time to find Flora the Fox.

Flora is chilling in a lush park among the company of two former Aiken mayors.

Look for their monuments in this charming downtown oasis named after a local dentist who oversaw the planting of a hundred oaks and elms around the city in the late 1800s.

While you’re here, you might be tempted to sink your teeth into a slice of pizza.

Where is Flora?


Not too far from Flora, you’ll find Fender the Fox slinking through a festive downtown lane where no Ford or Ferrari can go.

Unlike the typical shy fox, Fender likes live music, amped up menus, stirring art, and a rousing game of checkers or corn hole.

A hound finds the fox by tracking its scent. You’ll find Fender by following your nose and your ears.

Even foxes need a little retail therapy, and after a day of exploring the boutiques and antiques of Aiken, Flo the Fox is rather thirsty.

She’s found a quaint little fountain in a median along Laurens Street that was donated to the city by the 1964 class of Aiken High School (Go Hornets!)

If you’re looking for a little refreshment yourself, an ice cream shop in your line of vision is all the buzz!

Where is Flo?


Shhh, look quietly for Fable the Fox as she probably has her nose buried in the latest page-turner.

She loves nothing more than to check out a good mystery, thriller, and occasional self-help guide.

If you get distracted by the distinguished architecture of the 19th-century former academy here, the stories its walls can tell, or even the colorful playground, don’t worry, Fable will let it slide.

Franklin the Fox is catching some Zzzs in front of a grand columned building where presidents, royalty, and kings of industry have come to do the same since the end of the 1800s.

A president that shares his first name was said to be a frequent visitor.

When Franklin awakes from his nap, he might enjoy a gourmet lunch, a hot stone massage, or an ice-cold glass of sweet tea beside the pool.

Where is Franklin?


Aiken, South Carolina, is known for its history, heritage, hospitality, and horses, including the centuries-old equestrian sport of fox hunting where fancy-dressed riders on horseback follow a pack of hounds in hot pursuit of a fox. (It’s all about the thrill of the chase – no animals are harmed!) The sly little devil is said to be one of the craftiest animals around, and the baby fox, or kit as it’s called, is no different.
