Charles Fraser walking his alligator – statue can be found at Compass Rose Park on Hilton Head Island
In September of 1663, on a voyage of exploration, Captain William Hilton entered Port Royal Sound and spotted a headland-a high point that would be called Hilton’s Headland, or Hilton’s Head. 320 years later, Hilton Head Island became the Town of Hilton Head Island. Today, a group of volunteers are organizing a 350/30 anniversary blowout to commemorate both events. The Heritage Library Foundation, the Town of Hilton Head Island, Coligny Plaza, USCB Hospitality and Event Management Department, Coastal Discovery Museum, the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce, and many other island organizations are working together to plan a week-long celebration of the island.The celebration will kick off with an open house at Town Hall on Monday, Sept. 30, 2013 and culminate in a huge beach party on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, with events in between including tours of historic sites and lectures on the area.

His patience in negotiating contracts, knowledge of the area and contacts in the home purchase and renovation market proved invaluable. No question or request was left unanswered and Vince's willingness to learn about us made what could have been a stressful search a real pleasure. As out of state clients, it was imperative that our agent could manage every detail of the transaction and often handle issues that were surely not in his job description! Lucky us - we got a good friend too! "
