A U.S. Navy rifle range was built near here during World War I on the site of an old S.C. National Guard firing range. Included were 100 targets. 2 armories, a 600 seat mess hall, 12 barracks, and auxiliary buildings. After 1918 the 100 acres site leased from George E. Goblet, now Harborgate Shores, was used by the National Guard Army Reserves and Citadel cadets until 1937.
