In the Burgess Community of Myrtle Beach, SC - My trip to this farm was amazing! So rich in history. Agriculture has played a critical role in America's life, and for African-Americans, an even more critical role. The small family farm structure dominated African-American lifestyle from the early 1600's to the 1960's, and was central in the concept of emancipation. Although African-American farmers have made enormous contributions through agriculture to the economy both locally and nationally, historians have largely ignored their role. As the only African-American historical living farm museum in the United States, Freewoods Farm is devoted to recognizing and perpetuating the contributions of African-American farmers. Freewoods Farm, located in the Burgess community of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, provides education, documentation and preservation of the activities and practices of these farms. The Freewoods Farm will become an economic, educational and environmental engine for the region as well as bring life to an aspect of American history that is missing.
