Pin Point Heritage Museum

Pin Point Heritage Museum Review

The culturally rich community surrounding this museum has lived in relative isolation for nearly 100 years. Residents of Pin Point are Gullah/Geechee descendants of first-generation freed slaves from Ossabaw Island. Founded in 1890 on the banks of Moon River, this fishing community has a deep connection to the water. The longtime livelihood of many residents was working at the A.S. Varn & Son oyster and crab factory, which closed in 1985, marking the end of an era. The factory was reopened in 2012 as the Pin Point Heritage Museum to honor the life, work, and history of the community. Visit the website for hours and admission.
