Freewoods Farm

Freewoods Farm is the only African-American living farm museum in the United States.  It recognizes and promotes the contributions of African American farmers to the development of agriculture in South Carolina and the nation.  Situated on 40-acres of land in the Burgess community of Myrtle Beach, Freewoods offers hands-on education, documentation, and preservation of the activities and practices of the small family farm structure that defined the African American way of life after Emancipation.  The land is divided into three different educational experiences–Freewoods Farm, Wetlands Preserve, and Main Street–displaying unique components of the small farm community.  As a non-profit, Freewoods Farm welcomes volunteers who wish to experience how previous generations lived their day-to-day lives.
