Last week it is believed a Civil War era boat was discovered on the banks of Calibogue Sound off the 18th Tee of Harbour Town links in Sea Pines Plantation See Island Packet article....while I wish I had been playing golf ON the tee at the time, or walking along the beach, sadly I was not..... but, glad a visitor to the island was...... this find is one of many that bring home the notion that Hilton Head has so much more to offer everyone than just great beaches, golf and tennis.....The island has some fantastic History too.....As a vacationer, a resident or visitor you owe it to yourself to get out on the bike paths(historical markers are everywhere) or enjoy the Gullah Tour of the island....heck even if you find the rare bad weather day our local TV station WHHI offers some pretty cool insight into the history of this great Island...

As far as more recent history goes, and specifically recent Real Estate History on the island check out 2010's Real estate Market Stats for the beach oriented communities on the island(Sea Pines, Forest Beach, Shipyard, Palmetto Dunes, Folly Field) This is a pretty cool way to check out how the market is progressing and compare it to 2009, and perhaps see some trends for the New Year. The data was compiled from HH MLS..
