Posted By Bill Payer on Aug 13, 2022 | 0 comments

DIHS co-founder Beth Bush has scheduled a terrific list of events for the coming months!

First off will be a new event for us….The Kids’ Ride & Seek. Basically, it’s kind of a history scavenger hunt for kids K-3rd grade (ages 5-9) on Saturday, September 10. For full details, including how to sign up, parental permission and more, CLICK HERE.

Our regular monthly programs start Tuesday, September 20 with Mapping Charleston’s Black Burial Ground. While the City passed its first cemetery protection ordinance in 2021, there is currently no inventory of burial sites to ensure development is planned to avoid willful and unknowing desecration. Our speaker, Anna-Catherine Carroll of the Preservation Society, will share the latest information on this important project and the impacts it could have on our area! For details, go to our Calendar of Events.

On Tuesday, October 18 we will present The Barbados and Carolinas Model – Shared Influences. Guest speaker Rhoda Green will explore the “Barbados Model” constructed in Barbados by the British and then transported elsewhere. Again, lots more details on our Calendar of Events.

And the Fall programming will wrap up on November 15 with The Goose Creek Men: The Founding Fathers of the Deep South. The“Goose Creek Men” dominated Carolina for 50 years and implanted a strict caste system that influenced the Deep South development unto this day! Daniel Island’s namesake – Robert Daniell – was a member of this fascinating group. Details on the Calendar of Events.

As always, our monthly presentations are free and open to all. We hope you’ll enjoy them and consider becoming a DIHS member. Member participation, and member dues, are vital to the continuing work of DIHS. For information on becoming a member, CLICK HERE.
