Edisto Beach is not the first popular beach destination on Edisto Island. Just up the beach, on the other side of Jeremy Inlet, there existed a highly sought after, wealthy beach village. It was called the “Village of Edingsville” or “The Bay,” and was in existence during most of the 1800s. During its time it was the place to spend the summer. It had about 60 two-story plantation beach houses, two churches, a pool hall and even a hotel. Some say that a party atmosphere constantly existed in this village during the summer. Unfortunately, the hurricane of 1885 destroyed all of it in one wide sweep. There is now no evidence that it ever existed. Therefore Edisto Beach is not the first place where people came to enjoy the ocean off Edisto Island. This is what this book is all about, the beginning and ending of Edingsville. Enjoy it and spread the word of its existence.
