Bailey House – Edisto Island, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Charleston County Photos | Bailey House
This impressive live oak tree shades the backyard of the historic Bailey House near the Old Post Office Restaurant on Edisto Island.
Photographer Adam Morris took this photo. His parents now own the Bailey House, which was built in 1799 – a prosperous year for planters on lowcountry sea islands. Soil and climate produced cotton that could be spun into the finest thread available at the time. Sea Island cotton was sought after throughout the world and commanded premium prices.
The house remained in the Bailey family for many generations, but Adam’s father says it was this grand and sprawling tree that convinced him to buy the property when he had the opportunity in 1984. Adam and his wife held their wedding reception under the oak’s canopy in 2003.
