The Original Oceanfront Off-Plantation Neighborhood
Folly Field, one of Hilton Head’s original neighborhoods, was developed before there was a bridge to the mainland. The original beach cottages were built in the early 1950s so as to attract more visitors to the thinly populated, yet quickly developing, Hilton Head. Folly Field real estate became the heart of a neighborhood for the locals---the business owners and their families. The beach was pristine and development was sparse. Building standards were stringent then (as now), and new residents and out-of-town owners appreciated the laid-back and quiet streets---it was about nature and quality of life. Folly Field, though now nearly fully developed after all these years, is still one of the most beautiful beaches on the entire island.
