Heritage Assessment and Community Development, Eleuthera, Bahamas

The Center for Heritage & Society has initiated a partnership with a community development organization on the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas (oneeleuthera.org). We have conducted a pilot research project (Historic Building Survey) in Governor's Harbor, and we have developed a community engagement web portal for use by our partners. Finally, we are now in the development phase of an archaeological survey and excavation project in Millars on the site of a former plantation in collaboration with the descendent community. We are working with the One Eleuthera Foundation and the "Bannermantown, John Millars, and Eleuthera Association" and have met and worked with several other parties (e.g., Rotary, Breast Cancer Society, Haynes Library, Tarpum Bay Cultural Center).
