About Us

Friends of the Hunley, Inc. (FOTH) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to procure donations and raise funds to support the conservation and display of the Civil War submarine, H.L. Hunley, and its associated artifacts. FOTH manages public tours of the submarine every weekend; special adult and youth group tours are offered during the work week. The tours are educational and provide the history of the submarine, the technology employed for its success, and the science of its conservation. FOTH also manages Hunley-related merchandise sales via a physical store and an on-line web store. FOTH offers a membership program which generates revenue as well as provides knowledge about the submarine through newsletters and access to special features on FOTH website. All proceeds from tours, merchandise sales, and memberships are used to conserve and display the submarine and artifacts.
