About the Event
Join the Glynn Environmental Coalition for our Fall Membership Outing, on October 8th, 2021! This month, we are heading to Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation for a Cultural History tour.
This plantation represents the history and culture of Georgia’s rice coast. In the early 1800s, using enslaved African-American laborers, William Brailsford of Charleston carved a rice plantation from marshes along the Altamaha River. A short film on the plantation’s history will be shown before visitors are treated to a brief interpretive instruction. Faye Cowart, DNR Interpretive Ranger, will share stories she has collected on African American descendants of the slaves over the years (Gullah/Geechee). Guests will then visit the museum on-site before taking walking a short trail to the antebellum home. A guided tour allows visitors to see the home as the family kept it with heirlooms, 18th and 19th-century furniture, and Cantonese china. The site also includes a nature trail that leads back to the Visitor Center along the edge of the marsh where rice once flourished
