Management Plan for Fort Fredrick Heritage Preserve

Wateree River HP

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is requesting public comments on the Draft Management Plan for Fort Frederick Heritage Preserve in Beaufort County. DNR staff have prepared the Draft Management Plan to guide management and use of the property.

Fort Frederick Heritage Preserve (FFHP) was acquired and dedicated in September 1999 to protect a Colonial British tabby fort and its associated archaeological remains. The property was ranked as the 30th most critically significant cultural site in the 1990 Statewide Assessment of Cultural Sites. The fort is designated as an archaeological site, 38BU102/1100 and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in December 1974. Additional archaeological components known as Smith Plantation and Camp Saxton (38BU163) exist on the property and make momentous contributions to the FFHP’s significance.

The draft FFHP management is provided in the Adobe PDF format and you can provide comments on the website or by email. DNR will be accepting comments on the plan until September 21, 2016. If you have any additional questions or would like to provide detailed comments please send those requests to Sean Taylor, Senior SCDNR Archaeologist at
