Charleston County, SC
“Wilson Bugby” is a 400-acre river front property on the Bohicket River on Wadmalaw Island, in Charleston County, SC. To this day Wadmalaw Island remains rural, allowing its residents to pursue traditional Lowcountry land uses as they have for generations. This diverse rural open space forms the fabric of the island’s’ natural communities, and in turn has shaped the island’s cultural heritage. With explosive growth in and around Charleston, SC, especially along the rivers and on the sea islands, Wilson Bugby was acquired to stop imminent high-density development. Over a four (4) year period $4.8 million was invested in land and improvements, a conservation easement was donated to Lowcountry Land Trust, and the property was sold to a private conservation buyer subject to the Lowcountry Land Trust easement.
