Johns Island, also spelled John’s Island, is an island in Charleston County, South Charleston and is the largest island in the state of South Carolina. The bordering islands are; Wadmalaw, Seabrook, Kiawah, Edisto, Folly Beach and James Island. The Stono and Kiawah rivers separate Johns Island from its border islands. It is the fourth largest island on the US east coast.
Johns Island is 84 square miles (220 km2) in area, with a population of 14,000 people. To point out, the island is gets its name from Saint John Parish, in Barbados. Who are first the settlers to the island. Native Americans such as, the Kiawah Indians, were the first inhabits of John’s Island. They survived by hunting.
Moreover, these tribes were living and farming off the land,
when the Europeans arrived. The Native America tribes in this area included the Stono and the Bohicket. Initially, the Stono and European settlers had good relations. However, after the Stono killed some of the European’s livestock, the whites murdered several Indians in retaliation.
Johns Island had scattered settlements that were situated near the water by the 1670s. Maps dated from 1695 and 1711 show plantations established on the banks of the Stono River. During the colonial period, indigo was the main crop, prized for its rich blue dye. The plantations that grew crops, including indigo, relied on slave labor.
