“Neat history surrounded by beautiful trees.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We found this on a walking/biking map and were intriuged. It's kind of hard to find because its hidden in a residentual area but we finally found it. It was very neat and the signs descibe it very well. It's very well preserved for being that old.

“Check it out if you're in Seapines!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Definitely worth seeing if you're staying in Seapines!! Loved biking up to the ruins, it will take about 10 minutes to check them out.

Wouldn't drive out just for this if you're staying far unless you're on the way to South Beach or something else, it's a nice stopover before or after a meal.

“A Low Profile Gem”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The Baynard Plantation ruins are on Sea Pines Plantation. Admission to Sea Pines $5 per car and there are many other attractions within Sea Pines. I have visited Sea Pines many times, but this was my first visit to Baynard Plantation Ruins. This site is a great place to visit. It takes only a few minutes. The path from the parking lot is short. The ruins in and of themselves are not remarkable, but the educational signage is excellent. This beautiful, shady location can be a good place to teach or learn about the history of Hilton Head Island.

“Cool historic site, but small”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Great area to bike to. We spent maybe 30 minutes walking around. It was a great place to stop on our way to Harbour Town. The site is very interesting, but the ruins are quite small. Not sure I would make a trip to them special, but worth it to stop along your way.

“Good for history buffs”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

The ruins are not extensive but gives you a window on how life was on
the Island before and during the Civil War. Parking is easy and you can walk around at your leisure.
