Plowden Weston, Lt. Gov of SC 1862-64, obtained land here in 1844 and by 1858 had built this beach residence. The Weston family sold the property to William St. Julien Mazyck in 1864, who sold the house to Atlantic Coast Lumber Company in 1901. The company permitted its employees to vacation here. After an ownership change some years later, the house was named The Pelican Inn.

The home was designed and built by Renty Tucker (1831-1913), a slave who was also a skilled carpenter. Renty built the home on the mainland, marked all the timbers with Roman numerals and then reassembled the home on the island.
