Join Phoebe Elliott for tea at the Heritage Library. Phoebe will share her experiences as the wife of William Elliott, the first successful planter of Sea Island cotton on Hilton Head Island. The Elliott family continued its success after William's death. Phoebe's memories address the growth of agriculture in South Carolina, life on Hilton Head in the early 18th century, the social activities of a prominent family, and their travels to and from their plantations.
