Upstream from the Port Royal Sound and Colleton River is an unspoiled 3,000 acre private island not much different than it was in the early 1800's. The historic Tabby Ruins adjacent to the Spring Island golf course, are a reminder of the beautiful Edwards' family mansion and working plantation in the Low Country. This best master planned community has been carefully preserved in one of the top places to live in South Carolina. The island has desingated 1,200 acres as the Colleton Nature Preserve and Chechesee Nature Preserve. Spring Island has received many awards for land stewardship which include Winner of the Urban Land Institute's Award for Excellence.
