Historic Travellers Rest will open to the public with an event focused on antebellum African American history. The event, entitled, Giving Place to the Unrepresented and Misrepresented: Finding African Americans in the Historic Record will include tours describing the roles of African Americans in a plantation house, grounds tours focused on how farm landscapes were shaped by enslaved labor, tours of the exhibit A Past Uncovered: The Story of the Enslaved People of Travellers Rest, and presentations by staff from the Metro Archives on researching African American genealogy.
The house tour is ticketed ($15 adults, $10 for youth ages 10-15) and is offered by reservation only. (It is not suggested for children under the age of 10.) All other offerings that day are free to the public. Doors will open at 12:30 with programming beginning at 1:00. The event concludes at 4:00 p.m. To register for the house tours, go to www.historictravellersrest.org
