Located in coastal Beaufort County in South Carolina, the town of Bluffton sits on a high bluff overlooking the May River. It was this popular waterway that contributed to the town's early success as a port town, and today it's the source of Bluffton Oysters, justly famous for their fat salty sweetness. Bluffton is only 5 miles from the resort destination of Hilton Head Island and all its amenities, and an easy 20 mile drive to historic Savannah, Georgia.
Bluffton was settled in 1825 as a summer retreat for wealthy upstate planters eager to escape the heat, mosquitoes and disease that was rampant among their home plantations. The town became a hot bed of secession meetings during the years preceding the Civil War, and consequently suffered decades of economic privation after the war's end. Bluffton began to experience a revitalization of commerce with the development of Hilton Head Island in the 1960's.
Today, you can still experience the great determination to keep history alive. On any given day, you may attend a Lowcountry Civil War lecture series, or find a newly discovered photograph at the Heyward House. This antebellum home has been lovingly restored and now serves as a museum and Bluffton's official welcome center. From here, you can experience Old Bluffton, a mere one square mile in size, but loaded with an eclectic mix of art galleries, antique shops and boutiques, great restaurants, and plenty of southern charm.
Drive along the roads that line the May River. Peer through the moss-draped ancient trees to see comfortable family homes with wide screened porches facing the riverbanks.
