Bass Head

The headland fronting on the Atlantic Ocean near the line between Leamington and Shipyard Plantations is designated on most of the old maps of Hilton Head as Bass Head, apparently honoring the well known perch-like fish so esteemed for food and frequently caught here.  It has no other recorded name.
