Hilton Head Island Institute

The Hilton Head Island Institute
The Calibogue Series: Cultivating Community
Monday Oct 7 & Tuesday Oct 8 from 9am-1pm

Day 1 – There is a unique richness to life in the Lowcountry and the barrier islands of South Carolina. Consider the incredible meeting of the maritime forest with the sea, the adventurous planning creativity that spawned the the development of Hilton Head Island in the modern era, the blending of the historical local cultures with new folks who have chosen to move here, and the robust system of community organizations and initiatives that have evolved over the decades. Those forces have combined to make Hilton Head Island and this region “a place apart.” This day’s compelling program will be led by Todd Ballantine, who grew up on Hilton Head Island, and who has long been considered the Lowcountry’s environmental expert and conscience. Todd and friends will address our Lowcountry legacy, our challenges going forward, and opportunities to find your niche in this fascinating community.

Day 2 – The evolution of Hilton Head Island over the past 150 years is extraordinary. The island transitioned from plantation and Gullah culture through the Civil War, reconstruction, and the dawn of freedom. Remarkably, the nation’s first freedman’s village was created on Hilton Head Island early in the Civil War by General Ormsby Mitchel, as freedmen migrated to the island for protection. This day’s program will provide you with insight into that singular point in time, and also provide the context for Hilton Head Island’s subsequent journey into the modern development era. Compelling morning historical presentations will be followed by guided visits to Mitchelville in the afternoon. Storytelling and a visit from underground railroad hero Harriet Tubman will be included. Come and learn about the incomparable community history that is right here in our own neighborhood.
