Interesting Facts About Pawleys Island:

The earliest known inhabitants of the Pawleys Island area were Waccamaw and Winyah Native Americans. They called the area “Chiquola” or “Chicora”, meaning “the land”.

The Waccamaw tribe got its name from the nearby Waccamaw river. The river is referred to by the natives as “coming and going” which influenced their name. These tribes lived off of the land and the sea. They embellished many amenities that it came with, including Oysters. The ocean winds and the abundant source of wildlife made it ideal for these tribes. Even today there is some evidence left such as “middens”, these are huge piles of shells from the oysters that were harvested by these tribes. There are still a few Waccamaw natives left unlike their neighboring tribe, the Winyahs who are completely extinct. The Winyahs inherit their name from the Winyah Bay, an area known for its surplus of wildlife much like Pawleys Island. In the early 1700s the colonists from Europe began to set up markets and shops to barter and sell items with these tribes. This was short lived; soon fights began to break out and many problems arose causing complete destruction of these tribes.

The island became a refuge from summer mosquitoes because of common windy conditions. The town’s namesake George Pawley owned the island during the colonial era, and sold portions of it to other planters seeking to escape malaria.
