Want to own a piece of the old Folly Pier? Now is your chance as the first set of pieces are now on sale. All proceeds benefit the Charleston County Parks Foundation and its mission to help all residents experience Charleston County Parks and programs.
In 2021, contractors began pulling these pilings that sat below the waterline for 25 years. The pilings were taken to Dockmasters Construction in Ravenel to be dried, cut, sealed, and hand-branded with an image of the pier and a unique serial number. Some pieces have patterns from marine borers while other pieces showcase the natural beauty of the tree rings. Each piece is branded on one side and blank on the other. These authenticated pier pieces are the only salvage items that can be guaranteed from the Folly Beach Pier.
The structure, officially named the Edwin S. Taylor Folly Beach Fishing Pier, has been undergoing construction after heavy damage by shipworms prompted its closure. A 1,039-foot replacement is scheduled to open in the spring of 2023. The gift shop and observation deck of the Folly Beach Pier are open to the public while replacement construction continues for the remainder of the pier structure. The new Folly Beach Pier is expected to open in the Spring of 2023. For updates on the status of the Folly Beach Fishing Pier construction, click here.
