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

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.
