Hike Into History on June 16

On June 16, Ranger Josh will take visitors on a tour of Kingsley Plantation which overlooks the Fort George River. The event will include a look at the late 18th-century planter’s house, the slave cabins, the gardens, the barn and the kitchen. He will discuss the history of the plantation and its complex tale of enslavement, freedom, lineage and survival.

Participants should dress for high summer temperatures, wear closed-toed shoes and a hat, carry a bottle of water and bring insect repellent.
