The Bluffton Oyster Company actually sits on reclaimed land, built up by more than a hundred years of discarded shells from previous shucking operations. The oyster business thrived in early Bluffton and throughout the 1920’s, with five different oyster operations in the area.

In addition to selling the oyster meat, the shells were sold for road surfacing and for chicken scratch.
