Communities on Daufuskie Island:
Today, Daufuskie Island hosts half a dozen different communities. The folks who choose to make Daufuskie home are a varied group, from those desiring a comfortable escape from the hustle of modern urban living, to those who prefer the simplicity and disconnectedness of a rustic sea island traversed by sandy roads and moss laden live oaks.

Haig Point is the private, residential community on the northern end of the island. Several significant historic landmarks are located within Haig Point boundaries, including the Haig Point Lighthouse (circa 1882) and the tabby ruins of nineteenth century slave quarters.

The historic district comprises much of the southern end of Daufuskie Island. Eclectic homes, artisan studios and art galleries are interspersed along shady lanes with the reconstruction era First Union African Baptist Church and Praise House as well as the pre-modern era White School and Mary Field School.

The Webb tract, at nearly 600 acres, is the largest undeveloped parcel on Daufuskie Island. Reminiscent of the way much of Daufuskie looked in the early 1900’s, it remains a lush maritime forest and home to the a variety of woodland animals and birds.

Melrose, Oak Ridge and Bloody Point communities share the eastern half of the island. These modern developments have property that overlooks the Calibogue Sound and Atlantic Ocean.
