The Park has a few genealogy books & an incomplete listing of soldiers that fought & served during the 1775 & 1781 engagements. We only have records up the time of the Revolution. We do not have documents from the 1800s on or information about families that lived in the area or land records.

Did You Know?
During the Siege of Ninety Six, the Patriots built a rifle tower. Sharpshooters were able to fire into the Loyalist held Star Fort. The Loyalists tried to burn the tower but it was made of green wood & would not burn. A reproduction stands now at 10 feet, one third of the original height.
