Our trip to Pin Point Heritage Museum was one of the first things we did on our trip to Savannah, and it was our favorite excursion of the entire trip. I highly recommend renting a car and paying this place a visit if you are ever in the Savannah area – it’s truly a remarkable place. If you have never heard of the Pin Point Heritage Museum, I have included an overview from their website below.
In 1985, the A.S. Varn & Son oyster and crab factory in Pin Point closed its doors for good. It marked the end of an era for the tiny fishing community tucked quietly away on the banks of the Moon River, just south of Savannah, Georgia.
For nearly one hundred years, Pin Point was isolated and self-sustained, a Gullah/Geechee enclave founded by first-generation freedmen where family, religion and work were deeply connected to the water.
Today, the factory has been reopened as the Pin Point Heritage Museum, celebrating the life, work and history of this Gullah/Geechee community that calls Pin Point home.
The Pin Point Heritage Museum is open Thursdays and Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm
