Joshua Shubrick Visits Friendfield Village
Joshua Shubrick was a former resident of Friendfield Village. He split his time between Georgetown, where he cared for his mother, and Hobcaw, where he went to Strawberry School. Shubrick stayed with his grandfather, Timothy McCants in Friendfield while he went to school. He left the area as a young man, but returned in 2004 and became an oral historian for visitors to the now-preserved Friendfield Village.
In this video Shubrick discusses his memories of Friendfield Village as he leads a tour of the house his grandfather stayed in. Mr. Shubrick died in March, 2015.
