at the Lake House Live Oak Room

The last SINHG Evening Program of the spring will be held on April 26th and will explore the early colonial history of the Lowcountry as John Hiatt, Charles Towne Landing’s Historian and Lead Interpreter, recounts the battle for control of coastal ports and resources between the two dominant colonial powers of the early 17th-century, Spain and England. With the Spanish firmly entrenched at St. Augustine, Florida and the English claiming Charles Towne a few hundred miles to the north, the Lowcountry was caught in the middle of the tug-of-war between the two for possession that shaped our Lowcountry’s future.
