Travel back in time at Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site and help us celebrate “the birth of South Carolina” at our annual Founders’ Day Festival.
Living history staff will bring to life the site’s fascinating history through a variety of programs and activities. Several groups of seventeenth-century re-enactors will interact with visitors in authentic encampments located within the reconstructed palisade wall that protected Charles Towne in the 1670s.
Demonstrations will include the firing of blackpowder cannons and muskets, as well as cooking and other daily chores crucial to the colony's survival. Site archaeologists will be available at the current excavation site to show visitors the latest research discoveries.
