Pawleys Island, SC

 

 

 

Pawleys Island may be known for being one of the oldest non-commercial summer resorts on the East Coast. Located just between Myrtle Beach and Charleston. This "Agro-gently shabby" town as it is known is less than 4 miles long and accessible by two short causeways. The island itself separates two bodies of water the Waccamaw River and the Atlantic Ocean yet they merge together at the southernmost part of the island.

Pawleys Island's beach front homes used to house many wealthy rice planters. What original homes are left on the island after hurricane Hugo are considered historical landmarks even though they have been remodeled. What was destroyed in hurricanes now has been rebuilt to small and large luxury beach front homes ranging with price tags from several hundred thousand to several million dollar homes. The new homes now have modern designs but still keep that classic beach look. Pawleys Island also offers neighborhoods along the Waccamaw River such Hagley Estates, Ricefields and the Reserve homes. Each offering access to the water they also have other great amenities. Not all of Pawleys Island homes are located around major bodies of water but the ones that are not are just minutes to the beach or the river.

  Pawleys Island was given its name by the American Pioneer George Pawley. Pawleys Island is also known for the Original Pawleys Island Hammock.

One being the Gray man who is said to walk the island before storms to warn people they need to evacuate the island. In return if you listen to him your house will not be harmed by the storm. The second ghost of Pawleys is Alice Flagg a young girl who had fallen in love with a lumberman and her family did not approve of his social stature. He gave her a gold ring but her family did not want her to wear it so she place it on a ribbon around her neck and tucked it under her dress. When Alice became sick and was transported back to her home town of Murrells Inlet where she died her family found her ring, cut the ribbon and tossed it into the marsh. Alice was buried at All Saints Church in Pawleys Island where she is known to be seen walking around holding her chest looking for her lost ring. 

 Living on Pawleys Island is a great pleasure when waking up to the smell of the salt air, the sound and views of the ocean or marsh! The island its self is built around about 600 homes, a small police station, a pier and small condominium building.
