BLUFFTON, S.C. -

A new pavilion and historical marker are set to be officially unveiled in Bluffton next week.

The pavilion was recently constructed in DuBois Park on Bridge Street.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication is planned for Thursday, October 17th at 9:00 a.m.

Bluffton residents, business owners and guests are invited and encouraged to attend.

"Old Town is the soul of Bluffton; the pavilion makes it easier to enjoy activities in the Historic District as well as giving people an opportunity to host their own event in the center of Bluffton's charm.

The new historic marker will also remind park patrons of Bluffton's rich and layered history," Mayor Lisa Sulka said.

The pavilion, designed with Lowcountry architecture, will provide Bluffton's residents and guests a place to gather with its restrooms and catering kitchen.

In addition, the pavilion will provide people with public bathrooms, which is an amenity that will enhance the hundreds of special events which occur in Bluffton each year.

The ceremony will also dedicate a new historic marker which tells the story of the Burning of Bluffton by Union Troops during the Civil War.

The historic marker is placed in the park because many homes and businesses in the neighborhood were destroyed during the burning.

The Lowcountry Civil War Roundtable organization funded and sponsored the historic marker.

Several speakers will be on hand for the dedication and refreshments will be served at the end of the ceremony.
