On select Fridays this Fall, tour two historic sites connected to the Civil War and Reconstruction eras on Hilton Head Island thanks to a partnership between the Coastal Discovery Museum, the Hilton Head Island Land Trust and the Mitchelville Preservation Project.

Visit the site of the self-governing community of Mitchelville (est. 1862) to learn about the Port Royal Experiment and how freedom and Reconstruction impacted the new citizens who lived there.  Nearby, join a guide for a tour of Fort Howell, built in 1864 to protect the town of Mitchelville. Learn about the 32nd U.S. Colored Infantry troops who built the fort, the methods used to construct it, and the importance of its preservation.

Cost is $15/Adults and $10/Children (ages 6-12). No children under the age of 6, please. Reservations are required by visiting the Coastal Discovery Museum's website or calling (843) 689-6767 ext. 223.
