Description

Award-winning Seabrook Village is a unique, African-American living history museum. The Seabrook community was established through federal land grants made possible by General William T. Sherman's Field Order 15 (1865), a policy that came to be known as "forty-acres-and-a-mule." Freedmen settled as landowners on the same lands they had once worked as slaves. Armed with little but their newly found freedom, a plot of land, and the determination to build a brighter future for themselves and their children and grandchildren, the freedmen of Seabrook represent the African-American Pioneer Experience. Eight turn-of-the-century buildings offer visitors an authentic feel for African-American life and culture from 1865 to 1930. Almost all artifacts, land and structures have been donated by collectors and members of the local community. Visit the one-room Seabrook School where "reading, writing and 'rithmetic were taught to the tune of a hick'ry stick." Or, try your hand at grinding corn into meal and grits or washing clothes on a scrub board. Planned group visits are fully interactive as costumed interpreters engage visitors in all aspects of old time village life. On-going exhibits include the grave art of Cyrus Bowens and the Willis Hakim J. Hones Material Culture Collection of hand-made items from a peanut roaster to twig furniture.

To visit on a day other then Tuesday or Thursday, please call and make an appointment.
