About Daufuskie Island Magazine

Hello Friend!

Whether you’re a Daufuskie island resident, a wanna-be Islander, a visitor, or just plain curious about this island-with-a-funny-name, you’ve come to the right place.

Created by long-time resident Catherine Tillman, the purpose of Daufuskie Island Magazine is to honor Daufuskie’s rich heritage, showcase its natural beauty, celebrate its residents, and strengthen our community’s connections to each other and the “outside” world.

You’ll find stories and information related to our history (ghosts and such), our critters (like our gators), our groceries (i.e grits and other southern staples), and anything and everything that captures the amazing grace that is the gift of island living. And because we’re home to plenty of colorful characters (one resident said “you have to be one bubble off center to live on Daufuskie”), you’ll find hard-to-believe but true stories that are guaranteed to make you grin.

For basic information about Daufuskie, check out the About menu and the Resource section. If you’re a part time or full-time resident, in the Daufuskie Directory you’ll find plenty of local links and contact information. If you’re someone who is planning to visit Daufuskie, you’ll find everything you need to know to enjoy your trip.

We’ll be adding new content on a regular weekly basis, so please visit often, and be sure to sign up for our blog. We’d also love to hear from you, so feel free to contact us with your comments, feedback, suggestions. And if you’ve got a story or a song or something about Daufuskie to share, we’d love to consider your contribution!
