Station 19

This 3.1-acre property is permanently protected and serves as both a public green space and an access point for fishers and kayakers to explore the beautiful waterway. The property contains an open grass field that is used by local residents for picnics, frisbee, or local pick-up games. There is easy access to a marsh creek for kayakers and paddleboarders. An active osprey nest is located at the northern tip of the property. The area has a long history of community service, where it served as the site to transport lumber from a barge to the local lumber business. The area was the site of the island’s trash incinerator in the 1960s, and after Hurricane Hugo in 1989, the site was used to house debris. This is how it got its name, “Old Dump.”
