Hilton Head Island's Gullah Celebration

Freedom Day: Explore Mitchelville An Interactive Tour Experience

In 1862, shortly after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed -- while most of the African-American slave population was still trying to adjust to the idea of their new post-war freedom -- the people of Mitchelville were busy creating a completely new, self-governed culture that would be the guidepost for generations to follow. Take a guided journey through historic Mitchelville to learn more about the people and their methods, by bike or on foot. Cost: FREE
