Our Members

Members of HEARTS Circle support the park's mission to provide unique, place-based experiences transcending time and delivering a deeper understanding of the past and present.


Your membership gifts are essential to make possible further research and programming, to explore and share the history, ecology, art, and stories connected to this land. Our members’ support creates and maintains our trails and grounds, furthers preservation and conservation initiatives, funds archaeological research, facilitates archival research, preserves collections, fuels art integration, supports operations, and provides visitors a historic destination for new connections and experiences.

HEARTS Park Goals

  • With historic preservation and ecological conservation always first in mind, respectfully and sensitively explore and recognize the vast history and ecology of the site and region.

  • Share stories of connections, and inspire through music, dance, drama, and visual arts.

  • Honor everyone from the past with connections to the land.

  • Connect to the adjacent Carolina Thread Trail and greenway network, with trails to the main historic structures, as well as the beautiful natural trails meandering the land; recognizing the remaining structures and ruins; identifying native species, and sharing their historic lore.  

  • Develop outdoor spaces for the arts, gardens, reflection spaces, events, and educational opportunities.

  • Operate a financially sound park model.

  • Create a destination for tourists and a community hub for locals.
