Location Summary
The 20,000-acre tract known as Palmetto Bluff extends from the headwaters of the May River near the town of Bluffton, skirts Bull and Daufuskie Islands via the Cooper River to its east, and gives way finally to the ancient freshwater rice fields of the New River along its western edge. The land mass defined by these three historic rivers is thus an island in the truest sense, and that is surely one of the reasons it remains so pristine today.

For more than a century, "The Bluff" has been known to a privileged few as one of the wildest and most beautiful places in the Carolina Lowcountry - itself an area recognized as one of the most picturesque in the world.

Here, amid spectacular natural beauty rich in wildlife, a diverse group of people will create their own legacy of living as well by connecting to themselves,
