Justus and Martha Angel were the last descendants to have the 400 year old tree handed down to them before they ended up selling the plantation which “The Angel Oak Tree” sat upon, which was part of Abraham Waight's 1717 land grant.
Now the City of Charleston owns the tree, ever since 1991.
The tree is magnificent and if you have a chance to visit, take it! It is awe-inspiring and simply beautiful. We spoke to one of the care-takers today and you can tell that no development will be able to encroach on this historic, majestic, southern tree. #lowcountry #JohnsIsland #JohnsIslandSC #capturelow
