In 1985, the A.S. Varn & Son oyster and crab factory
in Pin Point closed its doors for good. It marked the
end of an era for the tiny fishing community tucked
quietly away on the banks of the Moon River,
just south of Savannah, Georgia.

For nearly one hundred years, Pin Point was isolated
and self sustained, a Gullah/Geechee enclave founded
by first-generation freedmen where family, religion
and work were deeply connected to the water.

Today, the factory has been reopened as the
Pin Point Heritage Museum, celebrating the life, work
and history of this Gullah/Geechee community
that calls Pin Point home.
