Boone Hall Mt. Pleasant
Charleston, SC Plantation

Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. presents “Black History In America” as part of the Boone Hall experience.

What really makes this critically acclaimed exhibit unique is that this story is told using nine of the original slave cabins located on Boone Hall Plantation that were built between 1790 and 1810. Each of these buildings present different themes in telling the black history story.

Visitors are able to see the different aspects of daily life, how black Americans worked and lived, struggles that were faced, as well as follow different periods of historical progression from the beginning all the way up to present day.

Life size figures, pre-recorded narratives, audiovisual presentations, photos, pictures, biographical information, and actual historical relics, are interwoven and meshed together in displays throughout the structures presenting this exhibit.
