Who We Are
The Edisto Island Historic Preservation Society (EIHPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, founded for the purpose of preserving Edisto Island’s history. A 12-member board governs EIHPS. Over 700 member households support the organization. A staff of our director, a part-time administrative assistant and two part-time museum shop employees and a complement of volunteers operate the museum and advocate for historic preservation. If you would like to volunteer your time and talents in support of EIHPS, contact us.
