Landscape Walk: The Search for the Slave Houses at Drayton Hall

Join Assistant Curator of Historic Architectural Resources, Cameron Moon, on Friday, September 25, 2020 from 1 pm to 2:30 pm on the high ground landscape of Drayton Hall in Charleston for a deep dive into the search for slave houses on the Drayton Hall property.

While the main house is itself a slave house, we believe the majority of people enslaved at Drayton Hall lived in a settlement of some kind elsewhere on the landscape. This tour will chronicle the methods and resources we use to research where on the property slave houses may have been and what they would have looked like. We will walk to where we hypothesize a settlement may have been and discuss what we know so far, and what we have left to learn.

$40 non-member/ $30 member.
