REVOLUTIONARY WAR HISTORY LIVES IN SANTEE COOPER COUNTRY
Discover Fort Fair Lawn/Mepkin Abbey
Step back in time in American History and visit battle sites that were crucial in claiming our independence from the British empire. In Moncks Corner, just a short 30-minute drive from Charleston, you will find Fort Fair Lawn, the most pristine, intact, original American Revolutionary War fortification in South Carolina located on the grounds of the Old Santee Canal Park. The whole family would enjoy exploring this earthen rectangular fort that was originally built to protect Stoney Landing. While you are at the park, there is plenty of hiking walking trails along with an educational interpretive center and the Berkeley County Museum.
