Daniel Island Turns The Big 2-0!
This year marks Daniel Island’s 20th anniversary. Now a bustling center for living, working and playing in Charleston, it’s hard to believe that it’s been two decades since our island town began to take shape. Back in the early 1990s, Daniel Island was rural farmland that was also used for cattle ranching and as a private hunting retreat. But with the opening of I-526 in 1992, Daniel Island suddenly became the center of the growing Charleston region. Thanks to thoughtful planning, our community has evolved into a coveted residential address, an important center for business and commerce, and a destination for some of Charleston’s top special events.
Next week, the Daniel Island Historical Society will honor the island’s 20-year milestone at a special event that looks back at the early days of Daniel Island’s development. If you’re in the area, it will be a great opportunity to talk with some of the island’s first residents, historians and Matt Sloan, President of the Daniel Island Company, about what was life was like on Daniel Island before our island town emerged.
