Laing School and Reconstruction
 
The Laing School was built by the Freedman’s Bureau at the corner of King Street and Royall Avenue in 1868. It was founded by Cornelia Hancock, a Quaker who served as a nurse in the Union Army, and named for Henry M. Laing, a Quaker supporter of Freedmen’s education and advancement. Throughout Reconstruction the Freedmen’s Bureau built, funded, and staffed hundreds of schools for recently emancipated slaves throughout the South, both children and adults. The education, resources, and opportunities from these schools helped provide a foundation for African Americans to begin establishing lives as free citizens.

Hamlin Community
 
According to Hamlin historian Elizabeth Hamlin “Liz” McConnell, Hamlin Community was established in 1701, not long after Copahee Plantation was purchased in 1696 by one of her ancestors, Thomas Hamlin. The plantation originally encompassed approximately 1,200 acres of land. It was later divided into Copahee and Contentment Cottage with around 400 acres remaining today, known as Hamlin Farms and owned by McConnell’s brother, Osgood Darby Hamlin III. The area is now bisected by Rifle Range Road and Hamlin Road.

The Snowden Community and School House
 
As we continue on our exploration of the settlement communities within Mount Pleasant, our subject today is the Snowden Community and its historical gem, the Snowden School House. Although Snowden is an unincorporated portion of Charleston County, it is surrounded by the neighborhoods and commercial areas of Mount Pleasant. Snowden is located around the area north of Long Point Road including Egypt Road, Community Road, and Snowden Road. Snowden is one of the oldest Gullah-Geechee communities formed after The Civil War by freed slaves. Its close proximity to the Wando River allowed residents to shrimp, crab and fish both for profit and personal use. Additionally, the newly-freed residents of Snowden set up their own farms increasing the area’s agricultural renown for crops such as figs, peaches, blueberries, watermelons, and pecans.
