A History Worth Digging Into
History is the fabric of our community, and with the help of an on-site archaeologist, Dr. Mary Socci, we study artifacts that reveal the fascinating details about previous occupants of the area. These artifacts are on display at the History Center at Palmetto Bluff, with some dating back 12,000 years. The History Center features an historic "timeline wall” as well as maps and miniature exhibits. The timeline wall traces Palmetto Bluff's past from 10,000 B.C. to present day and recounts things such as the history of early Native Americans who inhabited the local area as well as specific events from the more recent past. Free and open to the public, The History Center is located on Boat House Row in Wilson Village.
This land has been managed for thousands of years. Our goal is to continue those efforts, even in the many conservation areas, nature preserves, interpretive trails, wetlands and pre-development locations that are rarely visited. We maximize diversity. We protect and, where needed, restore. For more information on donating to the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy or to make a donation, please click here.
