In scripting this booklet i'm hoping to offer you a few feeling of what Hilton Head Island used to be like prior to and after the Bridge. i used to be inspired via many acquaintances who listened to the tales my mom could entertain them with whilst Hilton Head was once one of many islands inhabited generally via blacks. She knew them as neighbors, and because a few spoke Gullah, a dialect spoken via low-country island natives, it helped that she spoke it fluently (or a minimum of communicated beautifully). Hilton Head at the moment used to be actually an island paradise with attractive virgin wooded area, environmentally pristine marshes, miles of uninhabited seashore and one dust street! This was once the island I knew as in 1951. this can be a heritage of Hilton Head that i've been part of and watched 12 months via yr become what we see this day. it's been a very good event and that i wish you benefit from the tales of a few of the genuine pioneers of Hilton Head Island. but if all is related and performed, i really be aware of that islanders both "old" or "nearly new" all love this island. and that's why i am scripting this publication: to proportion its "old" stories with the "nearly new".
