Forts of the Civil War Era
The preservation of Fort Howell is largely due to the Greenwood Development Corporation, which owned the property containing the fort. When archaeologists revealed the significance of the property, Greenwood deeded Fort Howell to the Hilton Head Island Land Trust in order to protect it in perpetuity. It had been all but forgotten in the history of the island, but its significance has been appreciated with recognition it has received since that time.
