Next Steps for Mitchelville

The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Ahmad Ward on March 29 at 2 pm for this in-person and virtual program.  In February 2020 Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park had just completed its Master Plan and prepared for the next steps in its development, until Covid-19 shut he world down.  This presentation will discuss how the organization was forced to change its direction and pivot to digital, while crafting the strategy going forward.  In addition, Executive Director Ahmad Ward will highlight the next steps for the organization and the future plans for the park site.
Ward is responsible for implementing the Mitchelville master plan, that will recreate this historic town as an interpretive site.  The Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park will convey this important story of freedom and citizenship to visitors from around this country.
Cost is $7 in-person and $5 virtual viewing and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.  The museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
