Celebration and Historical Marker Dedication of the history of the clay hill community now known as Allison Creek on Saturday May 6th and Sunday May 7th
Allison Creek Presbyterian Church presents a festival that centers around the life of Elias Hill, a formerly enslaved man who led the migration of 166 freed slaves from York County to Liberia after facing acts of terrorism by the Ku Klux Klan during the Reconstruction Era. The festival will bring to life the rich history of the formally known Clay Hill Community, which grew up around Hill’s Iron Works and Plantation.
This festival is made possible by a grant from the SC Humanities, which has a mission to enrich the cultural and intellectual lives of all South Carolinians.
