is such a unique island in that it is so close to two major American
cities, Charleston, S.C. & Savannah, GA ...and yet you

historical legacy began with the imprint of the Edisto Indians-it's
first known occupants. The Spanish arrived in the 1500's, followed by
English settlers in the 1600's. The English remained, first living
off the sea, then cultivating money crops of rice and indigo. By
1790, planters turned to a long staple cotton, known as Sea Island cotton-one
of the finest cottons ever produced. It was this crop that brought
the great wealth to Edisto Islanders. Many of the elegant houses and
plantations remaining today are reminders of that affluent age. These
sites are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. These
private homes are put on tour once a year by the Edisto Island
Historic Preservation Society. Look

ties. It is a place of little commercialization with responsible
development and one of a kind restaurants.
