Lawton Creek and Lawton Pond

LAWTON CREEK – The tidal creek wandering around the north end of Long Island, now Calibogue Cay, and back to the Lawton residence on Calibogia Plantation is still known as Lawton Creek.  It empties northward into Broad Creek.

LAWTON POND – Lawton Pond was a vast rice field lake traversed by Lawton Avenue at one point and is marked as such on several maps.  It has since been mostly drained in the magnificent alteration of the topography which has taken place during the development of Sea Pines Plantation, the Plantation Club now looking out over what was Lawton Pond.
