From a land once known for its quiet pastures and hunting grounds to an award-winning master planned community that is now home to thousands – the Daniel Island community is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year! The Daniel Island Historical Society was delighted to host a special program commemorating this milestone on May 17, 2016, at Church of the Holy Cross on Daniel Island. Joining us as a guest speaker at this event was Daniel Island Company President Matt Sloan, a key figure in the island’s early development who continues to lead company operations today.
Mr. Sloan talked with us about how the present day community came to be, sharing dozens of photos and stories of the early days of planning and development. Take a step back in time and check out his presentation by clicking on the file below!
