Mt Pleasant SC

Once known as “North Point”,  Mt Pleasant SC was a part of Charleston County until 1883 when Charleston County was split and Mt Pleasant became part of Berkeley County as well as its County Seat.  However, six short years later, Moncks Corner was selected to be the County Seat and Mt Pleasant reverted back to being part of Charleston County. 

During the period just after the Civil War, truck farming, a sawmill, a brick factory, and nine stores were the primary economic drivers.  A ferry provided transportation between Mt Pleasant and Charleston until the first Cooper River Bridge was built in 1929.

Mt Pleasant Today
Mt. Pleasant is the third-largest city in Charleston County and the fifth-largest city in the state. It is connected to Charleston b
y the eight-lane cable-stayed Arthur Ravenel Bridge built in 2005. The bridge is one of the longest of its kind in the U.S.   Mt Pleasant SC has long been known for its scenic beauty, especially Shem Creek which is the most picturesque waterway in the Lowcountry, as well as its close proximity to beaches.  There are many outdoor activities in Mount Pleasant to enjoy including golfing, tennis, boating and kayaking, nature tours, and deep-sea fishing.

Other favorite pastimes include shopping in specialty boutiques and antique stores, as well as plenty of more trendy and chic shopping venues.  There are also unique dining experiences at restaurants featuring everything from Gullah cuisine, to seafood and southern cooking.

Venues rich in history from various eras are available for touring; for example, the Fort Sumter National Monument and Boone Hall Plantation from the Civil War period.  The Charles Pinckney National Historic Site, from the Revolutionary War era, is the former residence of one of the framers of our Constitution.  History buffs will have a wonderful time experiencing some of our nation’s earliest history at several sites in the area, which also feature the first settlers, the Sewee Indians.
