The Ninety Six National Historic Site was the site of the very first southern land battle of the Revolutionary War in November 1775 south of New England. Seeking to push the British out of their last stronghold in South Carolina, American Gen. Nathanael Greene attacked on May 22, 1781. Anticipating Greene’s arrival, Loyalists soldiers erected additional barriers atop the earthen walls of the fort and settled in for the longest field siege of the American Revolution.

The visitor center offers audio tour rentals, which start at the museum and lead visitors throughout the entire site. The Ninety Six National Historic site is open Wednesdays – Sundays, 9am-4pm. No charge for admission.
