Neighborhood: James Island
Overview

At one point in its history (going back to 1767), a lighthouse was built 1200 feet inland and part of the island, along with a lighthouse keeper's house. By 1938 years of oceanic erosion brought it to the water's edge when the house was dismantled and moved. Today, the lighthouse, decommissioned in 1962, sits offshore in the process of preservation and renovation by Save the Light, a non-profit organization. Take a walk to the end of Folly Beach over the sand dunes to see this beautiful lighthouse. Kayak and boat tours from Charleston take visitors for a closer look.
