This Saturday, the Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site will show visitors what it was like to live in the town during the Revolutionary War. The town was taken over by the British in 1780 as part of their Southern Campaign.

From 10 am until 4 pm, visitors will be able to:

  • Watch re-enactments
  • Learn about being a soldier in an 18th-century British regiment
  • Interact with members of the 64th Regiment of Foot
  • Find out about regiment medical practices
  • Watch living history demonstrations of artillery, pottery, and colonial cooking
  • Talk with archaeologists about ongoing excavations at the park and see their latest finds

Admission is $2 per adult, $1.25 for SC Seniors, and free for children 15 and younger.   

The Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site rests on the site of Dorchester, a trading town that flourished along the Ashley River inland from Charleston from 1697 through the Revolutionary War.
