Harry Frank Guggenheim purchased 16,000 acres in the Charleston Lowcountry – including Daniel Island and Cainhoy Plantation – in the 1930s and 1940s. The property was maintained under his careful land stewardship for hunting, farming, timbering, cattle ranching and most importantly, for family gatherings.
Over 20 years ago, the Cainhoy Peninsula (and the Plantation property) was annexed into the City of Charleston as an integral part of the city’s growth plan. The peninsula is a key connection – tying Mount Pleasant and Charleston together.
