If Walls Could Talk.

At Seabrook Village…they do!

Walls Define

They explain the hard times…the days of makin’ do and the ingenuity it tool to make life better. Throughout the village there are interesting examples…a photograph carefully framed in wooden matchsticks…a peanut roaster made from old sewing machine and bicycle parts…a porpoise skull painted silver which decorated a grave…all attest to imagination, caring, belief, and indomitably of the human spirit. Seabrook Village is all about such things.

Walls Remember

Seabrook’s weathered buildings are touchstones of memory. Their aging walls hold on tightly to the memories of others who are gone and visitors share those experiences at the one-room school, the depot, in homes on on farms and during special events such as cane grinding, syrup making, rice planting, Old Timey Days and Country Christmas. Repeat visits to Seabrook are always fresh as each year more memories emerge within the walls of newly restored buildings on the village’s 104 acre site.

Walls Teach

Seeing is believing and doing is knowing. Students and visitors of all ages agree that Seabrook’s unusual site, its interactive programs and its lively discussions make learning inspirational and fun. Seabrook’s unique, award-winning educational programs are level-specific for grades K-12 and for post-graduate students. Other programs cover history, folklore, restoration, architecture, crafts and found art.

Walls Speak Truth

Seabrook Village is totally authentic. The interpreters come from community families whose roots go back over 150 years…from slavery, through the scorched earth ruin of Sherman’s “March to the Sea,” through the first days of freedom and land ownership, and finally, to establishing success. It is a true story of courage, dignity, hope and pride, told by those who lived it.
