The Dataw Historic Foundation’s mission is to foster the rich Sea Island plantation history of Dataw Island; to be the custodian of Dataw’s entire history. The Dataw Historic Foundation is tasked to collect, record and preserve artifacts and documents related to the history of Dataw Island; to maintain preserve and enhance historic sites and structures; and to promote broad awareness of, and pride in, the island’s rich antebellum history among current residents, prospective new residents and interested historians.
