Named after Robert Seabrook, a successful businessman who was known to trade with pirates, the town was not officially incorporated until 1987. Though Robert Seabrook settled in the area in 1679, his family sold the land in 1863 for Confederate paper. Today, the island is adorned with magnificent oaks and magnolia trees and is home to a variety of wildlife including foxes, rabbits, deer, alligators, and turtles. Certified by the Audubon Society since 1996, Seabrook Island truly is an unpretentious oasis. Read More
