Episode #15 – Mitchelville Preservation Project & Jared Templeton
Mitchelville Is A Triumph!
In addition to beautiful beaches, winding bike paths, and friendly faces, Hilton Head Island is home to one of the greatest stories in American history. Mitchelville was home to the very first self-governed settlement for freedmen in the United States, and it happened right here on Hilton Head Island! On this, our 1 year anniversary, Mandy and Chris sit down with Ahmad Ward, Executive Director at Mitchelville Preservation Project. This conversation taught us so much more about our island, the beauty of the human spirit, and how even today we can be involved in the work of Mitchelville.
Plus, we had the distinct please of talking to local musician Jared Templeton about his time on Hilton Head. Jared plays us a few songs and tells us where to find the best cheesesteak in the Lowcountry.
