Battery Creek – Port Royal, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Beaufort County Photos  |  Battery Creek

The coastal town of Port Royal is located between Battery Creek and the Beaufort River in Beaufort County. This small, historic town is known for its community beaches, quiet lifestyle, and multitude of walking trails and boardwalks.

Port Royal began as a colony founded by Jean Ribault in 1562. During the 17th century it became a Spanish and then later a Scottish colony. The Emancipation Proclamation was first read under the Port Royal Proclamation Tree in 1863.

The town gained international fame when the hurricane scene from the movie Forrest Gump was filmed near its docks. The Lowcountry Estuarium, an annual soft shell crab festival, and nearby Parris Island are popular attractions.

Battery Creek – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Battery Creek, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
