Heritage development subject of SC conference

Jun 28, 2010 4:08:00 AM - thestate.com
An international conference in South Carolina focuses on developing heritage areas such as the Gullah corridor along the Southeast coast.

The International Heritage Development Conference opens in Charleston Monday. The conference is a way to share ideas on heritage tourism and development and how cultural assets can be preserved.

The Gullah-Geechee Heritage Corridor Commission along the Southeast coast works to preserve the sea island culture of slave descendants.

The culture known as Geechee in Florida and Georgia and Gullah in the Carolinas is threatened by rapid coastal development. The commission is drafting a preservation plan for the 400-mile-long corridor.
