Walterboro ~ Walterboro Rice Festival H.L. Hunley Exhibit
Colleton Museum & Farmers Market and the Rice Festival Committee are bringing a life-size replica of the H.L. Hunley to Walterboro during the annual Festival.
“This sub is the exact same length, but four inches wider and taller,” said Mark Clark, commander of H. L. Hunley Camp 53 and the Hunley’s curator. He noted that the replica was made from parts of three separate submersibles used in the movie “The Hunley,” produced by Ted Turner.
The Rice Festival will take place Friday and Saturday, April 28 – 29, 2017. The Hunley replica will be set up in the City Parking Lot. Make plans to attend!
