NO.1758 HIGHWAY 17 - Mt. Pleasant, SC

Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina is one of America's fastest growing communities. Every day, the construction of housing developments, apartment buildings & shopping centers is approved & initiated, often times leaving elements of the old, original, TRUE Mt. Pleasant in its wake. From Freedman's cottages to historic oaks, the architecture & landscapes (& even the people!) that defined the area for decades are being replaced or overshadowed by overabundant 21st-century construction.

When will enough, be enough?


Location: Southbound on Highway 17 (right after the Mt. Pleasant Town Center); in proximity to

the Snee Farm Gullah Geechee community

Age: Early 20th century
