Edisto Island, located in Colleton County and about 45 minutes south of Charleston, is known for its unique charm and famous antebellum plantation estates that were, once, a legacy of the English and Spanish settlers who came to the island from the 1500's to the 1790's.
These plantations produced rice, indigo and the famed Edisto Sea Island Cotton, which was considered one of finest cottons in the world and accounted for the affluence of early Edisto Island residents. These plantations are now declared as historical sites by the National Register of Historic Places.
