Ferry Point Landing

For many decades during the colonial, Revolutionary, ante bellum and subsequent eras, one of the principal docks and landing places for Hilton Head was on the western side of  Jenkins Island on Calibogue Sound.  A public road led across Jenkins Island, through Fairfield to join other island roads. The site is so marked on many maps.
