Another extraordinary map of the region, titled "A Compleat [sic] Description of the Province of Carolina in 3 Parts." "A Chart of the Coast from Virginia to Cape Florida."

Dating from 1711, this map again includes New London (Willtown) prominently situated on the Edistow [sic] River depicted with twelve city blocks in contrast to Charleston's eight.

One of the authors of this map and an authority on the region, Thomas Nairne was tortured to death by Yamassee tribesmen at Pocotaligo a mere four years later. This event was the catalyst that started the Yamassee War in 1715.

Map of the South Carolina Lowcountry circa 1690. The first map to recognize the newly established Willtown settlement as "Nouveau Londre" or New London - at bottom left. This settlement was located at present day Willtown Bluff.

The name New London predated it's official naming of Wilton or Willtown by the Lords Proprietors circa 1697 when King William sat on the throne.

By 1720, having survived the Yemassee War, Willtown had become a growing regional trade center with 12 city blocks, a school, and a presbyterian church.

Nestled in the misty rye grass at the North end of the plantation lies the remnants of the historic "Wilton" parsonage and the "Burnt Church" cemetery. In this small tract, in the shade of a cluster of longleaf pine trees, sit two headstones and one altar tomb amongst sixteen unmarked depressions.

The cabin at Willtown Plantation was built in 1976. It features a large open deck overlooking the pond. Inside you'll find Pecky Cypress walls, wide plank pine floors, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, skylights and a fireplace. It is a low-profile landing place to rest after a fun day in nature and to enjoy an evening meal with friends and family. Thank you for this beautiful photo capturing the watchful ducks on the platform.
Three years ago, Ducks Unlimited film crews visited the ACE Basin to produce this beautiful documentary.

We celebrate the fact that since this recording, 2,101 acres of Willtown Plantation have been added to this impressive corridor of permanently protected properties. Willtown Plantation shares a 1.3-mile boundary with the ACE Basin NWR, further securing the protection of its vibrant wildlife habitat.
