South Carolina’s 350th Celebration of European

Panel 1 of 4

Settlement Traveling Exhibit

The South Carolina Historical Society, through the support of the City of Charleston and SunTrust Foundation, created a traveling exhibit focused on the stories of those who came to South Carolina in 1670, their reasons for leaving their homes, and how Europeans, Native Americans, and Africans interacted upon arrival. Their generous backing of this project allows SCHS to provide this exhibit free of charge to your organization for one month.

Displayed on four free standing, 7-foot retractable panels for ease of movement, this exhibit has been designed to work in most spaces.

For more information, contact Faye Jensen at faye.jensen@schsonline.org.

For schools outside the tri-county area, the trunk will be mailed to your school and the teacher will be responsible for mailing it back to the SCHS.
