If you're history and culture lovers like us, The Barbados Carolina Legacy Foundation has organized a trip of a lifetime for you. From customized tours to lectures and special events, this opportunity is completely tailor-made for those interested in the strong ties between the Carolinas and the island of Barbados.
British settlers from Barbados settled the Carolina colony in 1670 and ultimately transplanted a system of governance, architecture, and a cultural legacy that can still be seen and felt today. If you have enjoyed the nostalgia that Charleston exudes, then you have already bore witness to the result of the influence of Barbados over the centuries. Experience the deep connection between these two nations by participating in a journey to where it all began; the island of Barbados.

And you're invited...
The Town of Pendleton, SC was founded in 1790 on land that was once part of Cherokee Territory. Settled by immigrants from Scotland and Ireland, it also became a favorite for lowcountry landowners, who built their summer homes here to escape the discomforts of the coast. Today, the structures on the town square invite you to an eclectic mix of shops where one can find local crafts, antiques, gifts, boutique clothing and an art gallery. Hungry? Try the pub and grille, the bakery, bistro or go for Mexican. A five-minute drive from the square will get you to one of two plantation homes operating as house museums.
To celebrate its long and exciting history, Pendleton planned a year-long birthday party! Check out all the events that still remain and stay updated on their Facebook Page!
