Fodor's 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. Many residents once worked at the A.S. Varn & Son oyster and crab factory, which has been transformed into this museum to honor the life, work, and history of the community.
