Mitchellville on the Move

Brockington is pleased to announce that the Mitchellville traveling exhibit, created by our own History Workshop, is now open at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia, South Carolina. The exhibit tells the story of enslaved people who fled for Union lines near Port Royal in 1861, forming one of the first self-governing freedmen’s communities in the country. The artifacts in the exhibit were excavated by Brockington archaeologists during a recent project focused on learning more about the lives and stories of the people of Mitchellville.
