MeadWestvaco to Sell 50,000 East Edisto Acres


For the first time, MeadWestvaco Corp. is selling some its East Edisto land.

The East Edisto region master plan calls for at least 75% of the 72,000 acres to remain permanently rural. MeadWestvaco plans to sell approximately 50,000 of the total acres over the next five years for rural uses, said Ken Seeger, president of the MeadWestvaco Community Development and Land Management Group. The remaining 22,000 acres will be used for a planned community.

The land in the East Edisto Rural District can be used for timber, hunting, farming, civil, or recreational uses, as well as for low-density, rural developments, Seeger said.

MeadWestvaco has owned this land for more than 90 years. This is the first time it has been for sale to the public. Currently, about 4,000 acres are for sale as different lot sizes, Seeger said.
