On January 28, , the Nature Conservancy took possession of around 9, acres and is charged with protecting the island from development in perpetuity.
Countless conservationists, preservationists and residents helped save the island from development and to get it designated as a Public Trust Preserve. At the time we visited, around 11 a. Each day adults share boat rides to and from the island, commuting to their jobs in Murrells Inlet, Georgetown and neighboring communities.
But come Sunday morning, the island springs to life with residents and visitors alike at the New Bethel Baptist Church. We have boats that pick you up at 10 a. We toured the small, well-kept church starting in the fellowship hall and kitchen, where more traditional soul food is prepared for special occasions. Earlier in the tour Pyatt sang a Gullah spiritual he learned at a church in Charleston during a special African Day. Our tour took us past the best and worst of the Island—beautiful, well-maintained homes, and those that were abandoned or in serious disrepair.
Along the sand roads and in the midst of dense forests of oak and pine, we saw a diverse and unique eco-system that has evolved on top of a prehistoric, giant sand dune—a rare hill in this coastal plain. Both electric power and city water are supplied to the island. Calmer waters and the tall sand bluffs help draw hundreds of revelers on any given summer afternoon, even more on weekends.

He hopes to move back to the island one day and see a reversal in the steady decline in population over the past decade.
A lot of the younger folks moved off. We had to people living here when I was growing up. Skip to main content. Longtime member. Does not ship to Germany See details. Item location:. Montgomery, IL, United States.
