HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - About a dozen weddings and events at a historic Hilton Head Island property have been cancelled because of Hurricane Matthew.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head (https://bit.ly/2ezFK3p ) reports that the Honey Horn property is currently being used by the town as a debris processing station and has been filling up with trash, logs and mulch. Town manager Steve Riley says it could take more than six months before the site is restored.

The 68-acre property is owned by the town but managed by the Coastal Discovery Museum, which also has been closed since the October storm.

Museum CEO and President Rex Garniewicz says about 30 to 40 events occur annually at the site. He says it’s too early to tell whether the site will be ready for March or April weddings.
