The Friends of Charles Towne Landing

Thank you for your interest in Charles Towne Landing, the birthplace of South Carolina!  This South Carolina state park is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The non-profit Friends of Charles Towne Landing organization has a mission to perpetuate and celebrate the birthplace of South Carolina above and beyond the means and resources given to the park by the state of South Carolina.

Our programs include the living history of this special waterfront acreage.  We have refurbished the Adventure, a reproduction 17th century cargo vessel and are re-creating the original palisade wall.

We support the Animal Forest that is the home of many species indigenous to the Lowcountry when the settlers arrived in 1670.  You can be part of the Animal Forest by adopting an animal.

The park needs YOU!  We welcome new volunteers.  There are many different ways to volunteer at a park as diverse as Charles Towne Landing.  Whatever your talent or time is, we have a place for you here!

Please consider joining The Friends of Charles Towne Landing.  We are a non-profit organization that is supported only by generous supporters like you.  Be a part of history by joining us in the preservation of the birthplace of Charles Towne.
