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

Exhibits in the Dewees Island Landings BuildingOur Nature Center is a great place to learn about the island’s flora and fauna. Exhibits give you a chance to understand how our community lives close to nature.

Gift store

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.

Touch Pool

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.

Archives Exhibits

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.

Top Floor

Offices and Meeting Room

Lori Sheridan Wilson’s office is here, and there is a meeting table for board meetings.

Trading Post

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.
