Vanderhorst Family Papers

Adopt-a-Collection: Vanderhorst family papers

The Vanderhorst family papers (1689-1942) consist of correspondence, estate and plantation papers as well as journals, diaries, genealogical materials, photographs, and sketches pertaining multiple generations of the Vanderhorst family and the people who shaped their experiences. Greater access to the rich information contained in this large collection will be possible once the material is rehoused and more comprehensively arranged and described. Preservation of fragile photographs, sketches and bound ledgers will allow researchers and scholars to expand what is known about important events that shaped the history of both South Carolina and the nation from the colonial era to the dawn of the twentieth century.
Estimated cost: (time & supplies for re-housing & deeper description) $7,500
