Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site


History Initiatives

Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site is even more than a place to visit. We stay active in the local community and beyond through various initiatives. 

Union County Community Remembrance Project

We support the Union County Community Remembrance Project, which was established to recognize the difficult history of lynching and racial violence in Union County, South Carolina. The lives of African Americans who resided at Rose Hill were affected by these traumatic events. White residents at Rose Hill were associated with these events, too, either through tolerating or perpetrating violence.

Reconstruction Era National Historic Network

We are part of the Reconstruction Era National Historic Network, which connects diverse sites to tell the story of what happened in this nation after the Civil War and emancipation. Reconstruction is one of the best documented periods in Rose Hill’s long history. 

Oratorical Contest

We are preparing to organize an oratorical contest for students using Reconstruction-era speeches given in South Carolina. Want to get involved? We need help finding and transcribing speeches. Please contact us to volunteer in support of this contest.
