DUNES WEST HISTORY
Four Men’s Ramble ⇒ Lexington ⇒ Georgia Pacific ⇒ Dunes West
The first historic record of the land now known as Dunes West is a grant of 1000 acres made in 1696, and it is believed to have been first developed when it was then purchased by Captain John Vanderhorst, Joseph Vanderhorst and Thomas Lynch in 1712. The site became home to a large plantation known as Four Men s Ramble. The plantation produced mostly bricks along with some rice and cotton and the main house and its outbuildings were located on the site that is now the Dunes West Club.
In 1827, the plantation was sold to A.S. Willington, the first editor of the Charleston News and Courier newspaper, and the property became known as Lexington. In subsequent years, Lexington changed hands several times and, by the end of the Civil War, the main house was in ruins. In 1930 the property was purchased by Henrietta Hartford, the widow of Edward V. Hartford and one of the nation s wealthiest women. Mrs. Hartford developed an elaborate estate on the site of the original Lexington house including a thirty-two room house furnished with imported European antiques, a saltwater swimming pool, tennis courts, nine golf holes, stables, a guest house, servants quarters and gardens designed by the Olmsted firm. Some of these additions remain today.
In 1937, Mrs. Hartford was remarried to the charming Prince Guido Pignatelli of Italy. The Prince and Princess visited Lexington often until it mysteriously burned to the ground in 1942. Unable to face rebuilding the estate, the Princess eventually sold the property in 1947 to the O.L. Williams Veneer Company (which later became a part of Georgia Pacific).
