The Old Oyster Houses

The oyster houses on Daufuskie derived their name from the residents who worked in the local oyster industry, built and lived in these classic structures.

The oyster industry died years ago and many of these homes were abandoned. While a number of them have been rehabilitated, an unfortunate number remain untouched and deteriorating. We hope to document these classic, vanishing structures.
