The Story Behind This Haunted Fort In South Carolina Is Truly Creepy
Fort Fremont, at Lands End on St. Helena Island in South Carolina, is one of those under-publicized places that is a hidden gem for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, it’s open to the public and access is absolutely free – for now. Secondly, it was never updated so what you see of the remains is what they built, and it’s right on the water. And finally, it has a history that is emblazoned with stories, haunts and legends even many of the locals will attest to be pure fact.
The entrance to Fort Fremont is located at 1126 State Road S-7-45 off Lands End Road on Saint Helena Island in Beaufort County, SC. In 2004 Beaufort County, South Carolina paid two private landowners a total of four million dollars for the present day 15-acre site on which Fort Fremont Park sits. It is now protected as a historic site and public park. More information.
