It was a rainy day, so we stopped in and really enjoyed learning about the history of the island. Be sure to look through the photo albums to see the devastation from the hurricanes.

This is a small very specialized place dealing with the history of one local family, but they have quite a collection of pictures and items. We spent about 30 minutes here and read most of the descriptions. Worth a quick stop in.

This small museum is a gem. Plenty of artifacts from 100 years ago, some civil war and marine items. Lots of shells. Quite a history of the area. Very pleased we stopped.
