Hilton Head Celebrating 25th Birthday

While Charles Fraser and his crew started selling homesites in Sea Pines Plantation in 1956, it wasn’t until 1983 that Hilton Head Island officially became a town. The Secretary of State of South Carolina signed the papers in March and in May of that year the citizens approved the idea (not without some opposition). In August, the town had its first election for a mayor and town council. The reason Hilton Head Island has remained such a beautiful place to visit (and live), is primarily due to that election and the people who live here.

A local publication, CH2 (Celebrate Hilton Head), is marking ths anniversary with a series of articles about those who made this feat possible. All our guests get a copy of the publication when they check in. Click here to read the first of the series. It will probably make you like the island even more.
