Slave Relics Museum.

Slave Relics Museum (Closed)

Field review by the editors.

Walterboro, South Carolina

The personal collection of Danny Drain, a descendant of enslaved people. Over 2,000 artifacts, including some that would be suited for a wax museum medieval torture gallery: human chains, whips, branding irons, spiked ankle shanks and neck collars. The museum also exhibits everyday items used and made by enslaved people, such as beds, cradles, furniture, dolls, quilts, tools, wooden bowls and spoons.

Danny, who lives upstairs from the museum, has turned one of its back rooms into a full-size recreation of enslaved people's quarters, and wants to build three plantation cabins in the back yard.
