The Foundation Realty Team had a great time on Tuesday during the Professional Development Class held at Haig Point.
Debbie Iredell, Charlene Neste, Marguerite Carver and Peter Hansen traveled by Golf Cart, the preferred way to travel on Daufuskie, while learning about this amazing island.
Daufuskie Island offers a glimpse of what other sea islands were like before bridges and causeways opened them to development. Since Daufuskie is an island without a bridge, you can only get here by passenger ferry or boat (no cars on the ferries). You’ll be able to leave your car on the mainland in a parking lot maintained by your ferry or water taxi company.
Located between Hilton Head Island and Savannah, Daufuskie Island is the southernmost Sea Island in South Carolina. It is five miles long by almost three miles wide – approximately 5,000 acres. Haig Point is located at the northern tip of the island.
There are three small General Stores on the island and three restaurants on the island.
Places to visit while on the island:
The Silver Dew Pottery, The historic Jane Hamilton School, The Iron Fish Art Gallery, The Daufuskie Island Community Farm,
The Strachan Mansion at Haig Point - was built in 1910 on St. Simons Island as a summer retreat. In 1986, the new developers of the community moved the mansion to Haig Point with two barges over three days in sometimes treacherous waters. The historic building was restored to its magnificence as you see today.
The Historic Lighthouse - While it serves as a guesthouse with two bedrooms, kitchen, dining room and porch overlooking Calibogue Sound, the Lighthouse is also a sought-after venue for weddings, special events and private parties.
