Mitchelville history should be taught everywhere. Glad this park with its informative plaques is here, but wish it had more exhibits. Great lesson for my homeschool son and our family. We also enjoyed the walk to the marsh and the maritime forest.

Parking is close to the beach so a plus for anyone that has difficulty walking. We prefer going to this beach at low tide. Some say its a good place to find shark teeth.

Great place to park and walk out to the water. It is near the airport and you will need to past the airport and watch on you right.

There is so little most Americans know about the period of slavery in and the great people that rose up out of it. This should be a stop you make while in Hilton Head.
