Church of the Cross - Bluffton SC

  The formal worship in the Bluffton area traces its roots to the establishment in 1767 of St. Luke’s Parish, where a church was built near Pritchardville in 1787. Services on “The Bluff” of the May River first took place in the early 1830s. The young town of Bluffton was a summer resort for area and inland planters and a stop on the ferry route between Savannah and Beaufort. By 1842, a chapel was built near the current location of The Church of the Cross.

The Hallelujah Singers

          Marlena Smalls organized The Hallelujah Singers in 1990 to preserve the melodies and storytelling unique to the South Carolina Sea Islands. Within a short time, this ensemble has become a national art provider, offering cultural enrichment by preserving and celebrating the heritage of the Gullah culture, whose language and traditions have been indelibly linked to Western African heritage.  Through their performances, interwoven with music and narration, The Hallelujah Singers present a miniature dramatization of some of the unique personages, rituals and ceremonial dimension that played an important part in shaping the Gullah culture and how it's influence has lived on in the broader music and culture today.

South-Carolina-Plantations.com

       South-Carolina-Plantations.com is a directory of information about South Carolina plantations and the people who lived and worked on them. It includes basic data for more than 2,000 SC plantations. These plantations are grouped by county (today's 46), but in time they will also be listed by place and waterway. They define a plantation as a large farm on which most of the work was done by slaves. Thus all the plantations cataloged were established before the Civil War.
