Over the last two decades the importance of presenting, discussing, and debating slavery at historic sites has become a prevalent topic throughout the United States. This study looks at challenges public historians face when interpreting slavery at historic house museums and offers recommendations for improvement. It specifically analyzes Hampton Plantation in Charleston County, South Carolina. This work draws connections between current historiographical understanding of slavery in South Carolina and the possibility for sharing that knowledge with a wider audience beyond academic alone through public history at a key historic site in South Carolina.
