The Landings building is the first building you see when you get to Dewees. You should make it your first stop!
The Mail Room is where packages are delivered, owners mailboxes are located, and the best water for drinking can be found. Dewees Island has daily mail service; residents have mailboxes in the Landings building. Fedex and UPS also deliver here. Non-resident owners can have mail and packages delivered to the common mail room. Outgoing US mail and on-island mail gets deposited here.
Nature Center and Archives
The gift shop runs on the honor system, verified by cameras. Owners can have purchases billed to their lots, but they should fill out a slip with sizes and prices. Please help keep it neat and refold shirts when you’re done.
During the summer, island interns maintain a touch tank for us to get a close up look at what creatures are found in our tidepools.
Our artifacts tell a story. Sewee Indians, Pirates, Francis Marion and British blockade runners; Robert Smalls and rumrunners: Dewees Island has had a front row seat to some of South Carolina’s greatest historical moments. Exhibits are donated and maintained by volunteers. The exhibits are maintained by our Archives Committee.
Offices and Meeting Room
Lori Sheridan Wilson’s office is here, and there is a meeting table for board meetings.
In summer, the trading post is a lively spot for children to bring in natural items they find and tell the naturalists what they’ve learned. They earn points to trade for other natural items.
Sustainable Building Resource Library
We have resources for you to learn all about green building on the island.
