April brings beautiful spring blooming flowers and a new weekend event to Middleton Place, National Historic Landmark. Living History Days, a two-day festival will be held on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Special programming focuses on springtime activities on the plantation.

Costumed interpreters from five states will bring history to life through demonstrations of traditional craft, labor and leisure activities of those who called Middleton Place home.
Numerous educational programs and activities will take place all weekend, including sheep shearing, horse and water buffalo demonstrations, fife and drum music and 18th century dancing in which the public is invited to take part. In addition, a church service will take place on Sunday at 9:00 a.m. in the Plantation Chapel. Camp will be open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday.
