Interested in local history? On June 22nd the Garvin-Garvey Home Dedication will take place in Bluffton. This historic home was built in 1870 by Cyrus Garvin, a former slave. The house, the land it sits on, the park and the town were identified as a collective resource important to the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor. The corridor was created to acknowledge contributions made to American culture and history by African-Americans known as Gullah Geechee, who settled in the coastal areas of the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida. The corridor was designated a National Heritage Area by Congress in 2006. Click here for more information on the dedication celebration.
