Your guides grew up on Pinpoint when it was an isolated island! Very interesting and often overlooked history of independent African American community after the Civil War. Buildings are well preserved. Film explains the overview, but the personal recollections of the guides are the best...More

Wonderful museum illuminating the Gullah/Geechee culture of old coastal Georgia and the history of the town built by the people. Beautifully and lovingly restored. If you go for nothing else, the documentary will open your eyes and warm your heart. Extraordinary experience!!!!
