5 mile(s) from Baynard Plantation Ruins, The Stoney-Baynard Ruins tells a colorful legend of Hilton Head Island’s Stoney and Baynard families. Let your imagination take you back in time, as you walk the very space that cotton planters, slaves, and Confederate and Union troops walked centuries ago.
The ruins are a living testament to an inventive masonry technique called “tabby,” popular in the Lowcountry during the 18th and 19th centuries. It was made by burning crushed oyster shells to make lime, which was then mixed with sand, whole shells and water.
Cotton planter Captain John “Saucy Jack” Stoney built Braddock’s Point Plantation between 1793 and 1810. The original home was built facing the Calibogue Sound in order to capture the much-appreciated breeze off the water, and although it only stands 40-feet wide by 46-feet long today, it is thought that the home originally stood much larger and included a large wrap-around porch.
9 mile(s) from Fort Howell, Hilton Head Island was captured by Union forces on November 7, 1861 after the Battle of Port Royal. The enormous amphibious invasion force, the largest until World War II, consisted of 77 ships (15 warships), 13,000 troops, 1,500 horses and tons of materials needed to establish the headquarters for the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron.
Three years later Fort Howell was built by black Union Army troops to protect Mitchelville, the first town in the South developed specifically for the thousands of newly freed slaves.
Fort Howell historic site is located near the intersection of Beach City Road and Dillon, right across from Hilton Head Airport. Admission is free, the site is open daily from dawn to dusk and it takes about 15-20 minutes to cover all the grounds.
