This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Folly Island in Charleston County, South Carolina with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- Home to Folly Beach Pier, stretching more than 1,045 feet into the ocean.
- “The Washout” on the eastern side of Folly Beach got its name when Hurricane Hugo “washed out” several homes and much of the nearby land in 1989. This allowed the wind to create some of the best conditions on the east coast.
- Although Folly Island today is a continuous island stretching from the Stono Inlet to Lighthouse Inlet, that has not always been the case. Many maps show Folly to have been considered two islands, commonly known as Big Folly and Little Folly.

Interesting factoids: The Folly Beach Public Safety and Charleston County Bomb Squad still, to this day, unearths cannonballs after bad storms, most notably Hurricane Matthew. During Matthew 16 cannon balls were discovered in what EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) members called a "loading position". It is likely that these were Civil War era Union cannonballs left behind due to their close proximity to each other and the fact that none had detonated. Most recently one large cannonball, probably Confederate, was found on March 13, 2017 at far northeastern end of the island.
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
