Pin Point Heritage Museum
In 1985, the A.S. Varn & Son Oyster and Crab Factory in Pin Point, Georgia closed and marked the end of an era for the tiny fishing community tucked quietly away on the banks of the Moon River just south of Savannah. Pin Point was an isolated and self sustained, Gullah/Geechee enclave founded by first-generation freedmen where family, religion and work were deeply connected to the water. Today, the factory buildings have been reopened as Pin Point Heritage Museum which celebrates the life, work, and history of this community.
O&H Brand Design worked in concert with a host of talented architects, planners, exhibit designers, historians, filmmakers, landscape architects and members of the community to turn a crumbling oyster and crab factory into to a state-of-the-art museum. Nform developed the interactive touch-screen installation which is on display at the Heritage Museum. The installation features an engaging menu-system which leads museum visitors to beautiful, full HD-resolution videos. The rich history, traditions, religion and entertainment of this close-knit community come to life with video and photography from both past and present.
