By Kay Moore

In scripting this e-book i am hoping to offer you a few feeling of what Hilton Head Island was once like ahead of and after the Bridge. i used to be inspired by means of many neighbors who listened to the tales my mom might entertain them with while Hilton Head used to be one of many islands inhabited more often than not by way of blacks. She knew them as buddies, and because a few spoke Gullah, a dialect spoken by means of low-country island natives, it helped that she spoke it fluently (or at the very least communicated beautifully). Hilton Head at the moment used to be really an island paradise with attractive virgin woodland, environmentally pristine marshes, miles of uninhabited seashore and one dust street! This used to be the island I knew as in 1951. this can be a historical past of Hilton Head that i've been part of and watched yr through 12 months turn into what we see this day. it's been an excellent event and that i desire you benefit from the tales of a few of the real pioneers of Hilton Head Island. but if all is expounded and performed, i really recognize that islanders both "old" or "nearly new" all love this island. and that's why i am penning this e-book: to proportion its "old" stories with the "nearly new".
