Once you get past the fast-food restaurants, apartment complexes and big-box stores that line Garners Ferry Road as it heads out of town toward the coast, you might be surprised to learn that the southeastern portion of the county is rich in history.
On Thursday, June 19, South East Rural Community Outreach (SERCO) will present FOCUS: Richland, a three-day event that will offer opportunities explore the region’s history through tours of Wavering Place Plantation, Goodwill Plantation, several other historic sites, and the Harriett Barber House, which is rarely open to the public. The event also includes a Juneteenth celebration and a farm-to-table feast.
All the events are free, but registration is strongly suggested. For more information, or to register, visit sercosc.org.
