Johns Island In the late 1600’s Johns Island was named by its earliest settlers for St. Johns Parish in Barbados. Original inhabitants were nomadic Native Americans such as the Kiawah, Stono and Bohicket tribes. All of which are now the names of rivers that frame Johns Island, the Stono River being the Intracoastal Waterway. These rivers and their feeding marshes abound with fish, including redfish, trout, flounder and mullet, as well as shellfish, including shrimp, blue crabs and oysters. Dolphin are also numerous in the waters. There are hundreds of bird species including bald eagle, osprey, wild turkey, heron, hawks, egrets, duck, geese and owls. The early settlers created Indigo plantations, shipping their crops to Europe where its vivid blue color adorned fashion and home décor. Later rice and tea flourished. Johns Island has a rich and active history from both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Now its biggest battle is with growth. It experienced a 50% population growth between 2000 and 2010. Conservation groups are working hard to insure future growth is ecologically responsible and sustainable, while allowing Johns Island to retain its natural beauty and the purity of its resources. Johns Islands large plantations have evolved into many small family farms that are the backbone of the Farm to Table dining movement that Charleston has become world famous for. The area is noted also for the magnificent old live oaks that frame the entrance to many grand homes and
