Brockington’s Work at Mitchelville Featured in History Workshop Exhibit

In 2013, Brockington completed extensive excavations at the former town site of Mitchelville, on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  Mitchelville was an important and early freedman’s town founded during the tumult of the Civil War, in 1862. The work, which was lead by Scott Butler, was completed in preparation for the expansion of the Hilton Head airport.

Building on the artifacts and stories gathered during the excavation, Brockington’s History Workshop recently completed an exhibit on Mitchelville.  The exhibit is now open at the Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island, and is featured in an article by the Island Packet.  See link below to read the whole story (and see the video!).
