Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site

This is the site where a group of English settlers landed in 1670, and established what would become the birthplace of the Carolina colony. School groups have the option of both history tours and nature-based tours. Students will get to learn about what the settlers experienced in 1670, trade and mercantilism, and the rivalry between England and Spain during the colony's development. Depending on their tour focus, groups will get to make stops at the crop garden, the palisade wall, the common house, and other places. A self-guided tour option lets groups make their own discoveries about the site.
