Pin Point Heritage Museum

Open Thursday and Saturday 9am-5pm, and by appointment for groups.

In 1985, the A.S. Varn & Son oyster and crab factory in Pin Point closed its doors for good. It marked the end of an era for the tiny fishing community tucked quietly away on the banks of the Moon River, just south of Savannah, Georgia.

For nearly one hundred years, Pin Point was isolated and self sustained, a Gullah/Geechee enclave founded by first-generation freedmen where family, religion and work were deeply connected to the water.

Today, the factory has been reopened as the Pin Point Heritage Museum, celebrating the life, work
and history of this Gullah/Geechee community that calls Pin Point home.
