historic site

Culminating in a high bluff of the Santee River, the Battery Warren Trail traverses mixed hardwood-pine forests dotted with dogwoods and leads visitors on a trip back in time to the era of the Civil War. The trail highlights Battery Warren, a Civil War earthen fort meant to blockade Union forces from moving up the Santee River. The name comes from Colonel Samuel Warren, a local Revolutionary War hero and previous owner of the land where the battery was built. The embankments of the old fort are still visible today.
