Spanish Wells History

From the 1790s Spanish Armadas to the present

Spanish Wells has been a special spot on Hilton Head since 1790, when ships of the Spanish Armadas stopped here between trips to refill their water kegs from the Artesian wells found on site. Modern development began in 1961 with the McIntosh family who owned the 360 acres of unique waterfront land. They envisioned a small, close-knit community with ample space and large lots. “Relaxed and quiet” characterized the original community, and the first stop sign wasn’t added to the neighborhood until late fall of 2001. The opening of the Cross Island Parkway in 1998 eased access to the community and the neighborhood boomed with a trend toward large, sprawling estates.
