First settled around 1751, nobody knows for certain how the village of Ninety Six got its name. By the time of the Revolutionary War, Ninety Six was a thriving village with at least 96 people and the site of the Star Fort, an important British defensive post. Visit the Ninety Six National Historic Site to learn how General Nathaniel Greene planned and executed a clever siege on the Star Fort in 1781. You can also see the lifestyles of colonial America. This is one of the more interesting military battle sites. The remains of the old Star Fort are still standing. You can also see a reconstruction of the Stockade Fort and an old log cabin that has been moved here. Fishing is allowed on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, from April 1 to November 1. The times for fishing are from 30 minutes before sunrise until 30 minutes after sunset.
