Edisto Island is treasured for its natural beauty, its beaches and creeks, its wildlife and its laid-back, easy way of life. But, it is also treasured for its rich history that includes Native Americans, Spanish pirates, English settlers, wealthy cotton planters, enslaved African-Americans and many who made their living off of the bounty of the ocean and creeks. The Edisto Island Museum preserves the history and artifacts unique to Edisto Island. The Museum has recently undergone an extensive renovation, including the installation of a slave cabin exhibit.
