The Story of Santa Elena

  • Heritage Library 2 Corpus Christi, Ste 100 Hilton Head Island, SC 29928 USA (map)

At the crossroads of Colonial America, Santa Elena has witnessed the march of history. Founded in 1566, before Jamestown or Plymouth, this little-known settlement served as the first capital for Spanish colonization of the new world. Its story mirrors that of early America; its religion, geopolitics, cultural clashes, war and struggles.
