Revolutionary War Fort To Open To The Public

Fort Fair Lawn, one of two Revolutionary War Forts in original condition in South Carolina, will soon be an education and recreational park, open to the public.

Acquired by the Lord Berkeley Conservation Trust and the South Carolina Battleground Preservation Trust in 2016, the site dates back to 1780 and is located in Moncks Corner, South Carolina. Davis & Floyd has completed the master plan for the 80-acre site, which includes the addition of new trails, educational centers, and a large public park. The redevelopment of the site will allow visitors to learn about the historic fort, which withstood many attacks during the American Revolution.

“Our master plan provides the local community with a truly unique recreational experience. As users make their way to Fort Fair Lawn, they will have multiple opportunities to learn about both the Patriot and British involvements in the Revolutionary War. As they do so, they will be walking the same trails frequented by General Francis Marion and Captain Wade Hampton. It is amazing to have such a historic resource in this condition and this new park will help to ensure that it remains protected for generations to come,” said Chris Haynes, senior landscape architect at Davis & Floyd.

Fort Fair Lawn will accompany multiple other historical forts open to the public in the greater Charleston area, such as Fort Moultrie and Fort Sumter. Davis & Floyd is grateful for the opportunity to be part of a project that brings history to life and allows the members of its community to learn about their cities’ timeless history.
