A Unique Historic Landmark

A Unique Historic Landmark

HILTON HEAD, SOUTH CAROLINA - Built between 1879 and 1880, the historic Hilton Head Rear Range Lighthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is part of the Inventory of Historic Light Stations and one of only a handful of surviving lighthouses in South Carolina. Although the faux lighthouse in Harbour Town is better known, this newly renovated lighthouse is Hilton Head Island's only historic lighthouse. It stands near the Leamington Lighthouse Live Oak overlooking the 15th green of the Arthur Hills Golf Course in Palmetto Dunes. The oak tree is about 70 feet tall, is estimated to be between 435 and 450 years old and is recognized as one of Hilton Head's oldest living trees. Guests may visit the unique spot in Palmetto Dunes by going to the resort's South Gate, requesting a guest pass, proceeding to the Leamington Gate and turning left onto Leamington Lane to the lighthouse.
