Site of the 1670 landing of English settles, includes ship replica, museum and animal forest

Truly the birthplace of South Carolina, in 1670 a group of English settlers landed here and established the start of the Carolinas colony, the plantation system of the American South and one of the continent's first major port cities. The view here hasn't changed much at all (except for the fact that you can now enjoy a convenient trolley and audio tour to get you from place to place!). First brush up on your history at the interactive museum and gift shop before you begin your journey through the Adventure (a 17th century replica ship), an experimental crop garden, archaeology sites, an animal forest with species indigienous to SC and 80 acres of gardens. The Legare-Waring House is a favorite place for weddings and events along with Founders Hall, a LEEDS gold certified event facility.
