Take a look at the new interpretive paneling in our Stableyards!

Category: Uncategorized

The Stableyards has historically served as the “educational heartbeat” of Middleton Place. In the 1970s and 1980s, the space served as an outdoor education area, displaying artifacts related to the tasks that enslaved people would have carried out. In the 1990s and 2000s, when Eliza’s House opened to the public, it served as an avenue to talk about the institution of slavery and how it functioned in the greater Lowcountry and Middleton Place.

Today, the Stableyards continue its tradition of innovation with new interpretive paneling that highlights enslaved people like Kouli-Kan, Quaco, John Baptist, Thomas, Molly and Beck. These names are critical to include in the conversation about Middleton Place, its legacy, and how we can enact positive change through our shared American history.
