Information about Yonges Island, SC
Yonges Island is located in Meggett, Charleston County, SC. The Wadmalaw River lies off its east and south coasts. The nearby town of Meggett was once a major railroad town that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad passed through, ending at a wharf on Yonges Island, causing it to be an important region for transferring cargo from the waterway to the freight trains. Meggett also had strong agricultural roots that it maintains today, while the railways were eventually replaced by trucks transporting goods.
