Cannon find revives history

It has been said that in order to shape our future, we must appreciate our past.

Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson State Historic Site offers one of the best ways to accomplish that.

As a location for field studies and the host of programs throughout the year, the site is designed to bring history to life. Culturally significant finds here help us understand how our county, our state and our nation came to be.
