Named for Edisto Island located 50 miles south of CH Charleston. Edisto Island is named for its indigenous inhabitants, the Edisto Indians. The barrier island was settled by the English in 1670. Edisto was found to be ideal for the cultivation of rice, indigo, and Sea Island cotton making the island's planter class some of the wealthiest people in colonial America. Planter's found a perfect balance in splitting their time between their plantations on the island and spending the hot summer months when yellow fever was a threat in Charleston. The island's economic properity was cut short by the onset of the Civil War in 1861. Today Edisto thrives once again yet retains an air of tranquility. Plantation land has now become farms that grow a variety of fruits and vegetables while the island's marshes and tributaries supply some of the region's best seafood.
