More about Palmetto Dunes Resort

Hilton Head Rear Range Light

by grandmaR

This is the only real Hilton Head Light. It is the Range (Rear) Leamington Light. Although both the lady at the condo units and the guide for the museum tour said that we could not get in to see it, we were able to visit it on our way out of Hilton Head by going to Palmetto Dunes and requesting a pass. I think there is an osprey or eagle nest on the top.
