Folly Field History

One Hilton Head’s original neighborhoods

The “off plantation” mid Island area known as Folly Field is partially responsible for the explosion of Hilton Head Island as not only a vacation town, but a permanent place to live. Olin McIntosh of the Hilton Head Company built the island's first beach cottages at Folly Field beach in 1953 to generate more ferry traffic from the mainland in hopes that the South Carolina government would then build a bridge to accommodate all the new residents and visitors. When the state refused, the 1956 Hilton Head Toll Bridge Authority was organized and privately financed by businesses. The bridge worked beautifully, and tolls were removed within three years after their overwhelming success covered the HHTBA's debt.
