an edisto story....compiled by marie of the pink van tour. long ago, edisto beach was known as mconkey's beach and the "main drag" know named palmetto boulevard was called mcconkey boulevard. a canadian family, the mcconkey's, moved to edisto island in the late 1800s, and bought a plantation originally named locksley hall encompassed approximately 2000 acres including the present day edisto beach state park, as well as all of the land which is now edisto beach. the plantation soon became known simply as the mcconkey place. the history of this plantation was already a sad one. william edings had built the mansion in the early 1800s, a three-story federal style stucco home designed as a "single house", which architecturally means the floor plan is one room deep. the edings family experienced so many personal disastrous events in and around the home that the place became known as "the house of tragedy". edings' first wife died in childbirth and is buried at the foot of the veranda stairs. the son she bore committed suicide; an adopted son accidently killed his nanny and then himself; two young daughters died of diphtheria within a single week and all of this occured before the mcconkeys lived there!! after the civil war the edings family never returned to locksley hall and the plantation was taken over by a family buied on the plantation grounds. the tragedies continued with the mcconkeys. jame mcconkey died under "mysterious circumstances" in 1892. erina mcconkey, according to legend, committed suicide in 1904. jane mcconkey burned to death in a kitchen fire in 1912 and john mcconkey was murdered in 1915. his murder was never solved, although many edistonians from previous generations have offered their opinions, and it is commonly believed the killer is known but was never prosecuted. the place was then owned by another family and ultimately bought by navy admiral murphy and remains in that family to this day. even though every self-respecting family on this island embraces it's own residential ghosts, the present owner of the plantation, (now known as seaside) reports no "unusual" events. pink van tour 843-603-0967
