Celebrate Black History Month at Middleton Place with Beyond The Fields Walking Tours and view Eliza’s House where an exhibit focusing on the daily lives of enslaved people and their work “beyond the fields” is on display. The Beyond The Fields Walking Tour and Eliza’s House exhibit are included with regular general admission to Middleton Place year-round.
The Middleton Place House Museum will present an exhibit in the Summer Bedroom which focuses on the daily life and interaction between members of the Middleton Family and the enslaved house servants they owned. The room will be set as a “moment in time” in the lives of both the Middletons and their enslaved house servants – bed unmade; clothing scattered about; toiletries laid out; letters or books strewn open. The exhibit is included with regular House Museum tours throughout the month of February.
Look for additional programming during the month, including a free screening of Beyond The Fields documentary film on February 15th @ 6:00 PM at Founder’s Hall at Charlestowne Landing.
