Projects include restoration and preservation of, and education about this historical site.

For links to current restoration projects, scroll to the bottom of this page. 

Plans include:
  • Public access for contemplation and research.
  • Plant trees and other landscape additions to reflect the tone of an historical site dedicated to this unique local history.
  • Preservation of historical records concerning the Historical Site, its world and its people.
Almost none of the records available in the archive at the Charleston Museum are digitized because of backlog and we would love volunteers to join the committee to help take on this project.
  • Archaeological surveys to find out more of the pivotal events that transpired here including the battle which was a turning point during the Yemassee War.
We are in talks with local educational institutions to create a Field School in the Spring which we hope to become an annual project in which students can participate for hands-on experience in a working archaeological site for possible school credit.

**If you are a student, talk to your advisor or department chair about participating.**
  • Rediscovery, restoration, and preservation of graves that have been destroyed or otherwise lost.
  • Creation of a record of each grave including GPS coordinates. 
A partial record can already be found at and our goal is to make it complete.
  • Restoration of headstones.
  • Demarcation of church foundations.
  • A public area for lectures and interpretations about local history.
  • Access to the canal that was a highway to Charleston for many colonists.
  • Restoration of the canal for public use.
  • Boardwalks to preserve the wetlands on the site and allow public access to Chapel Creek (whose source is at Foxbank).
  • Educational kiosks telling the history of the site.
  • and more to come!
