Isle of Palms, South Carolina History:
The city is thought to have been first inhabited by the Seewee Indians of South Carolina. Isle of Palms was the site of battles during both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. In 1898, visitors to Isle of Palms came by way of water or a single railroad bridge. Originally opened as a recreational area for privileged parties at beach homes, this semi-tropical retreat, bordered by beautiful beaches and a network of marsh creeks, has lost none of its original charm.
