SC Lowcountry Christmases: Middleton Place and Edmond-Alston House
Friday - December 19, 2008
About This Show
Charleston’s Middleton Place was established early in the life of the Carolina colony and served as a base of operations for a great Low Country planter family and was home to a dynamic African-American slave community. Today Middleton Place is a thriving restoration or eighteenth and nineteenth century plantation life with many educational programs offered to the public.
As one might expect, the Christmas season at Middleton Place is replete with holiday decorations and recreations of 19th century holiday traditions. Charles Duell, President of the Middleton Place Foundation, and Tracey Todd, Vice President of Museums for the Foundation, talk with Dr. Edgar about the history and future of Middleton Place.
