PENDLETON — A living history program on African-American traditions will be presented from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 8 at the Woodburn Historic House in Pendleton.

Visitors to the African-American Heritage Day will enjoy demonstrations and storytelling by Kitty Evans and Tyree Rowell from historic Brattonsville.

Demonstrations and displays will include local post-Civil War African-American history, one illustrating the life of Jane Edna Hunter, an African-American reformer who was born in a tenant house at Woodburn in 1882.

The history of African-American music will also be showcased with spirituals performed by gospel singers.

Presenters will demonstrate various aspects of African-American antebellum life and present stories of slave children and their games, cotton picking, and life inside the “Big House.” Guided tours of Woodburn Historic House will also be available at no additional charge.

Admission is $6 for adults, $2 for children ages 5-10 and free for children under age 5. Students from Anderson School District 4 will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
