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 who 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.

How sad to tear down such beauty. Do you know of the where abouts of the old cars and other relics?

Once again, take a beautiful slice of American history and turn it into a parking lot and condos for tourists almighty dollars… way to go Edistonians!

Awwwwwww. We always got our seafood there when we stayed on the island. We would ride there on bikes and bring it back in sacks with ice hanging over the handlebars. The kids would play with Mr. Bell’s dog that was always laying about the place. Time marches on. Guess we have our memories.
