A Historic Town

Pawleys Island was first settled by rice planters in the 1700s, who knew that it was unhealthy to remain on the rivers during the summer. They moved their families, horses, cows, bedding, provisions and furniture to Pawleys in May of each year, where they remained until the first frost in November!

The idea of Pawleys Island is a quaint, laid-back beach town. From this leisurely existence has developed the charm of Pawleys that still remains. In the historic district, you’ll find 12 residences that date from the late 1700s to the mid 1800s. The town continues to be known for its shoeless, carefree, laid-back life style, which includes crabbing in the adjacent creeks, fishing, stories of ghosts and rope hammocks.
