The area known as Pin Point has long been admired. The rural settlement, founded by freed slaves after the American Civil War, is still owned by the ancestors of the original purchasers. It’s the largest area of water from land owned by African Americans here in Georgia and was a self-sustaining community, living mainly off the water, with families of working fisherman and women of the Gullah Geechee ancestry.

Proceeds from the Pin Point Seafood Festival benefit Sweetfield of Eden Baptist Church.
