Fort Moultrie

Fort Moultrie

Even the humblest beach houses on Sullivan’s Island are now homes to millionaires, but in the 18th century, the now-posh island was used as a quarantine space for enslaved people brought here from West Africa and the Caribbean. At the beachfront fort that’s operated by the National Park Service, look for signs and exhibits exploring this period in South Carolina history.
