Heritage Library – The Story of Santa Elena



For Immediate Release 

Contact: Linda Piekut — lindapiekut@gmail.com843.686.6560heritagelib.org

The Story of Santa Elena: Before Jamestown and Plymouth, there was the Spanish settlement of Santa Elena on Port Royal Sound in Beaufort County, SC. The story of Santa Elena, founded in 1566 on Parris Island, is one of religion, geopolitics, cultural clashes, war and struggles to survive. It also is little known — even in South Carolina, where colonial European powers France and Spain established beachheads in the New World.

Join us at the library on Tuesday, April 26, and Thursday, April 28, at 10:30 to hear this fascinating story. The cost is $10 per person. Because seating is limited, reservations are required. Call 843-686-6560, or register online.

The Heritage Library is a nonprofit history and ancestry research center with low-fee services open to the public at 852 William Hilton Parkway (second floor; parking and entrance in back).
