The mission of Battery Gadsden Cultural Center is to preserve and celebrate the history and culture of Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina. Battery Gadsden Cultural Center works to preserve and provide access to the civilian history of Sullivan’s Island; to provide a space for the display of art and artifacts; to provide a space for artists to work and display artistic creations; and to provide a space for community events and artistic performances. Battery Gadsden Cultural Center launches its partnership with LCDL with the Sullivan’s Island Oral History Collection.
