The oldest structure dating back before the civil war is the Baynard Mausoleum at the Zion Cemetery right on William Hilton Parkway with plenty of parking. Come and breathe in the history of the Island.

This is a cool little spot of history on HHI. It's free and easy to get to. My wife, seven year old #nerdgirl and I enjoyed exploring the history and it was about a thirty minute visit to see and check everything out.

We found this place and was pleasantly surprised and loved the history given there on site. Hilton Head certainly has a great amount of history. Was very interesting.

Very interesting little cemetery just off the road. The parking is limited, but we were the only people there.

After visiting the ruins in Sea Pines, this is a must. It is a shame that they don't put a permanent roof on the mausoleum since it is the oldest building on Hilton Head.

Wife and I visit a lot of cemeteries and this one is really in bad shape. Lots of important history here. Looks like Hilton Head Area spends more time in taking care of its golf courses instead of taking care of its history.
