(Old Ninety Six & Star Fort) The historic district of Ninety Six National Historic Site contains numerous historical features associated with the economic and social development of the colonial South Carolina back country. Native Americans, colonial frontiersmen, and loyalists to the British crown have used this landmark site throughout state history. The area encompassed by the district also figured prominently during the American Revolutionary War, first as the focal point of regional political dissension and later as the scene of a lengthy siege that epitomized the strategy and determination of Major General Nathaniel Greene during the Southern Campaign of the War. As such, the district is of national historic significance. The historic sites included in this district’s documentation are those which relate to the site’s significance, for its association with the settlement and development of the English colonies in North America and with the southern campaign of the American Revolutionary War. Listed in the National Register December 3, 1969; Designated a National Historic Landmark November 7, 1973.
