At the south end of Sullivan's Island is Fort Moultrie which is the site of the Revolutionary War battles. It was here where the Americans used palmetto trees as fortification so the cannonballs would sink into the trees rather than destroy the structure. South Carolina is known as the Palmetto State in commemoration of this victory. Patriot Street is appropriate named given Sullivan's historical significance.

Sullivan's Island has also inspired many poets, painters and authors for generations. Edgar Allen Poe wrote many stories based upon his time spent while stationed on Sullivan's Island during the war, Goldbug Avenue and Poe Avenue were named after Poe's "Goldbug Island."
