McLeod Plantation


McLeod Plantation

Established in 1851, this 37-acre plantation is a significant Gullah/Geechee heritage site located on James Island. The McLeod plantation house, built in 1858, is a raised two-story clapboard structure. The plantation grounds include slave cabins, a detached kitchen, a gin house, a barn, a carriage house, and gardens. The property has served in many capacities over the years including a Confederacy Hospital, a burial ground for slaves and Union soldiers, and a headquarters office for the Freedmen's Bureau. Visitors can also view the McLeod Oak which is believed to be more than 600 years old. The property was bought by the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commision in 2010 and was opened to the public in 2015. Included in the admission is a 45-minute guided tour and access to the first floor of the main house.

Ukweli is Swahili for "Truth," and the South African Truth and Reconciliation Committee identified four truths: forensic, personal, social, and healing. This poetry, lecture, and dialogue series seeks healing truth as poet and writer Horace Mungin reads his poetry in a place created to enslave his ancestors. The reading will be followed by black scholars and authors who contextualize the poems. Radio host Osei Chandler moderates discussions around Black perspectives of history that are often minimalized at historic sites and museums.
