Southern dialects are closer-related to English ones than those in the rest of the country according to my old diction and dialect professor. There is some place in the south where, supposedly, they speak as close to 'colonial-era English' as you can get, closer even than any modern English accent.
You may be thinking of Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay. Also, Harkers Island off the coast of North Carolina.
I think it was the latter.
