Historic Sites on Hilton Head Island
Presented by members of the History Department of the Heritage Library

Tuesdays,  10:30 - 11:30 am
$5 Donation

Join us for a one-hour talk about the historic sites on the island accompanied by a  map that you can then use for your own self-guided tour of the sites by car or by bicycle.
Hilton Head Island has an extensive and varied history, and much of that history can still be seen and enjoyed at a variety of sites around the island. See the tabby remains of the Stoney-Baynard plantation house in Sea Pines, and the ramparts of Ft. Mitchel in Hilton Head Plantation.  Visit the Mitchelville kiosk in Fish Haul Park to learn about the first self-governed black community created during the Civil War, and the Gullah Museum on Gum Tree Road to learn of the Gullah community that continues to flourish on the island.

A $5 donation is requested.
