Some local folks headed to Ossabaw Island Sunday to take a tour of the historic island.

The island is home to one of the best-preserved tabby slave cabins in Georgia. Attendees spent several hours touring the property and learning about what life was like in the mid-1800's.

One tour goer says it's important for people to learn about everyone's history - not just their own.

"I think it's important for everybody to realize that this is all American history and so it shouldn't just be limited to certain groups of people that we can all learn from each other and that we can all grow from learning from each other's experience," said Tamara Parks, Toured Ossabaw Island.

Ossabaw Island was one of 8 Savannah cultural organizations and sites open Sunday as part of the "Lift Every Voice" day.
