Legends Volume 38

This very special issue of Legends highlights the history, evolution, and vision that have come to define this Island and its legacy. We look back on the last fifty years since the original master plan in “Kiawah’s Golden Hour” (pg. 62), and we get a first look at two new amenities that will mark a new chapter in the Island’s evolution in “Beau Welling Takes Orange Hill” (pg. 40) and “The Cape Club” (pg. 118). We meet Kiawah Island Club Members, the Beaches (pg. 48) and the Strubles (pg. 28), both long-time residents of the Island and stewards of its community.
