There’s some more coverage of the DIHS oral history project The Cainhoy Collective….this time from the Berkeley Observer,

” BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. – The Daniel Island Historical Society Is working to ensure that the stories of the past remain part of the present and are shared with future generations. The non-profit organization has partnered with the College of Charleston’s Department of History to launch a new oral history project on the Cainhoy Peninsula called “The Cainhoy Collective.”

The endeavor is the first of its kind on the Cainhoy Peninsula, with the specific mission of collecting oral histories from individuals whose families have called this historic area home for generations.

Time is of the essence,” said Lee Ann Bain, DIHS community outreach coordinator. “If we don’t capture these important stories now, they could be lost forever.”
