Honey Horn is a name that has existed for over two centuries, possessing a rich cultural and natural history legacy.  It is described by many as the last significant parcel of undeveloped open space on Hilton Head Island.  Consisting of 69 pristine acres at the juncture of the Cross Island Expressway and Highway 278, the property is filled with salt marshes, stands of live oaks, open fields, and a unique collection of some of the oldest structures that exist on Hilton Head Island. The Discovery House at the Coastal Discovery Museum opened in October 2007 and is open daily from 9 – 4:30 and Sunday 11-3.

The Art Market at Historic Honey Horn is part of BRAVO – Celebrate the Arts!  Festival held during the month of May each year.  BRAVO is a month-long celebration of our area’s vibrant arts community and diverse cultural heritage in partnership with the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.
