Ladys Island

Homes for sale in Lady's Island Country Club

It is said that during the colonial days, there was a woman here who possessed the kind of grace fashioned for true ladies. The wife of South Carolina Governor Joseph Blake, Elizabeth Axtell Blake - known to everyone as Lady Blake.  At that time, our picturesque island was known for its grand cotton plantations owned by the most elite of Beaufort families. The Governor purchased much of the land for himself, and it soon became a place dear to him and his wife. In time, lovingly referred to as "Lady's Island."


Today, some say Spanish explorers discovered and claimed the island "on the day of Our Lady" in 1526. Still others have their own tales delineating its heritage. Whatever the truth may be, a spirit as timeless as the ocean thrives here.


Among towering pines and twisted moss-covered live oaks. On ocean-going vessels making their way gracefully along the Intra-coastal Waterway. At every turn, there's a reminder of our island's proud heritage. This is the spirit of Lady's Island.
