History Talk: Mansfield
Author Christopher C. Boyle talks about the history of Mansfield Plantation on Tuesday, Feb. 10 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Horry County Archives Center.
Standing on the banks of the Black River, the Mansfield Plantation is a well-preserved living testament to antebellum rice plantations. In 1718, it started as a 500-acre land grant near Georgetown and soon grew to nearly 1,000 acres. Plantation historian Christopher C. Boyle captures the spirit of Mansfield Plantation and unravels the many mysteries of its past.
This event is brought to you by the Horry County Archives Center, as part of the center's History Talk series.
The Horry County Archives Center is located on the second floor of Kimbel Library, in Room 220.
