Bell Buoy Seafood – Edisto Beach, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Colleton County Photos | Bell Buoy Seafood
Bell Buoy Seafood served both locals and visitors of Edisto Beach with fresh seafood for over 40 years. Mr. Bell, the owner of Bell Buoy, also collected antique cars, fire engines, and tractors. From time to time he would park several vehicles on display outside for the visitors to admire while waiting for the day’s fresh catch.
Mr. Bell retired in 2003 – the business was closed and the building was subsequently torn down to make room for condos and a parking lot. Anyone that ever visited Edisto Beach prior to 2003 would remember Bell Buoy Seafood, Mr. Bell, and his interesting collection of cars, fire engines, tractors, and fresh seafood right off the boat.
Many thanks to Brent Silman of Prosperity for this great description and picture that he took in 1998.
