Hampton Park

Hampton Park

This 63-acre park of gardens, ponds, and oak groves is also home to a significant monument to Charleston’s pre-Civil War history. A new life-sized bronze statue was unveiled this year recalling the life and history of Denmark Vesey, a free black Charlestonian who was executed in 1822 for organizing an aborted slave revolt.
