If your community or civic organization is interested in learning about the SCHS Museum and Archives, contact Education and Volunteer Coordinator Bailey Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org or 843-723-3225, ext. 117.
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 Bailey Knight at email@example.com.
