Overview

From The Very Beginning. Sullivan's Island has held a unique place in the history of South Carolina. As a fortress, it provided protection from enemies. As a lazaretto, it became a main corridor through which slaves entered America. Its most enduring role, however, has been as a place of escape-first for those in the nineteenth century avoiding the epidemics plaguing the city and lately for those in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries looking for a relaxing vacation. Join native Cindy Lee as she traces the island's singular past. Calling on her experience as a guide to the city of Charleston, she uses the buildings to illustrate the stories of the people who lived and worked on Sullivan's Island for over three centuries.
