Two NEH grants enabled South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV), South Carolina’s PBS affiliate, to develop Between the Waters, an interactive educational website introducing learners of all ages to one of the state’s important historical sites. Over the centuries, Hobcaw Barony has been a Native American trading post, a coastal rice plantation, and a luxury retreat visited by Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It is now a nature preserve and research center. Between the Waters allows users to explore Hobcaw Barony’s contemporary lowcountry landscape and discover histories embedded in it through links to related archival materials and descriptions. Additionally, the site offers digital collections of primary sources and standards-based lesson plans designed for elementary, middle, and high school students.
