Port Royal Plantation History

From Native Americans to the Association of Land Owners

Port Royal Plantation has long been a center of activity on Hilton Head Island, originally used by Native Americans for hunting and seafood gathering for hundreds of years. The bluffs of our plantation were first sighted in modern times by Spanish Captain Pedro de Quexos in 1521, and were subsequently claimed by English Captain William Hilton in 1663, from whom the Island takes its name. Port Royal Plantation has certainly grown and matured in the many years since its founding. The current property owners association, incorporated in 1973, is officially known as The Association of Land Owners of Port Royal Plantation, Inc. (Association). The plantation’s roads, common areas, historical sites and amenities are now owned and maintained by the Association. It takes just a brief tour to see that the current landowners clearly are dedicated to maintaining the special character of the plantation and avoid over-development and over-regulation. Under the framework of their long-term plan, the Association is committed to providing members with a secure, well-maintained and friendly environment in which to work, play and relax.
