June 19th is a national day of commemoration in the United States, Emancipation Day or “Juneteenth.”  It was on this date in 1865 that the Union Army officially occupied the state of Texas ending one of the last bastions of slavery in the United States.

In addition to regular educational programming, screenings of the award-winning documentary Beyond the Fields: Slavery at Middleton Place and special first-person presentations will be offered to the visiting public. Learn more about Juneteenth and emancipation in the Low Country.

In recognition of this important moment in our nation’s history, Middleton Place will offer half-price general admission to all residents of Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties. Discounted tickets must be purchased at the Visitors Center with ID.
