Leisurely Living in a Historic Area

Sullivan’s Island is a significant part of South Carolina’s history, as Fort Moultrie was part of the strategic invading defenses of Charleston Harbor from 1776 through World War II. Sullivan’s Island is also known as one of the haunts of the dark and elusive character Edgar Allen Poe. He is known to have lived on Sullivan’s Island for part of his life, and several of his short stories, including the Gold Bug, take place here.
