The history of Daniel Island lies just beneath the surface. Revealed in half-buried artifacts and forgotten manuscripts, it is uncovered piece by piece in the stories and legacies of agriculture and industry, recreation and development. Occupied by Etiwan Indians long before the founding of nearby Charlestown in 1670, the land known as Ittiwan Island and its inhabitants were shaped by changes
throughout the Lowcountry and the world beyond. Their lime, timber, and bricks helped build the city. Local cotton and indigo spread throughout the world. Livestock and vegetable farming prospered, eventually replaced by Guggenheim's hunting preserve and cattle farm. Daniel Island today builds upon this past as it grows into a vibrant new community.
