Local museum interpreting Edisto Island's history of agriculture, an African-American school and nature room

Edisto Island is known for its natural beauty and a laid-back way of life. But it is also treasured for its rich history of Native Americans, Spanish pirates, English settlers, wealthy cotton planters and military conflicts. The Edisto Island Museum walks you through the history of the island through many artifacts, photographs and displays. There is an Agriculture Room with farm implements, displays from Edisto's oldest Freedman's house and an African-American school, and a Nature Room with fossils and shells found on Edisto's beaches!
