Description

This article challenges the opinion of some that the "Great Bluff", mentioned in the Indian Trade Commissioners Journal, 1716-1718, and the site of a early Indian Trading House, was located on the Yauhannah Bluff in Georgetown County. It makes an argument that the "Great Bluff" was actually the bluff on Bull Creek in present-day Horry County and that the Indian Trading House was located there. Excerpts of the Indian Trade Commissioners Journal from 1716-1718 are provided.
