Pawleys Island is one of the oldest beach resorts on the east coast of the United States. It’s original inhabitants settled here in the 1700s, getting away from the rivers to spend a healthier summer near the coast. The families of rice planters that owned lavish plantations would come here to get away from the rivers during the warmer months. They would stay at Pawleys Island until the first frosts of November. There are twelve residences in the historic district that still remain. Pawleys Island and the nearby area of Litchfield Beach are known for a wonderful laid back lifestyle which leads our families to the area for a minimum of two weeks a year. If you visit the area, it is a must to pick up an original rope hammock at the original Hammock Shop. The photograph above shows the Pawleys Island Pier taken during a full moon in August of 2011.
