Quick Fact Friday
The Origin of "Hungry Neck"
 
Hello Mount Pleasant! Happy August! One of our residents was curious about the origin of the name "Hungry Neck" Boulevard. Thanks to Lowcountry historian Suzannah Smith Miles, we have some interesting historical clues to consider.
 
The term 'Hungry Neck' shows up in writing as a place name for Mount Pleasant as early as the 1850s. Charleston historian Samuel Gaillard Stoney said that the name 'Hungry Neck' was given to the lands east of the Cooper River because the soil was too sandy to grow good crops. However, the late Milby Burton, former director of the Charleston Museum, thinks the name came from a 19th century plantation called Starvegut Hall on the Wando River (now part of the Dunes West subdivisions)...Starve-gut and Hungry Neck...interesting.

Scanlonville, Riverside Beach, and Remley Point Cemetery
 
Scanlonville is a quiet marsh-front community located on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Mathis Ferry Road. Established after the Civil War, this community enjoys a rich heritage spanning over 100 years. After the war, many former slaves began to establish their own farms and businesses. The development of Scanlonville is one such enterprise. In 1868, freedman-carpenter Robert Scanlon purchased the 614-acre Remley's Plantation that was bordered by the Charleston Harbor and the Wando River.
 
Scanlon founded the Charleston Land Company offering $10 shares to 100 African-American men to purchase large tracts of land. The land was divided into two-acre farm lots and half-acre town lots. By 1870, former slaves who desired to own land could purchase town or farm lots. The Charleston Land Company and the development of Scanlonville is one of four known cooperative ventures between African-American freedmen.

The U.S. Gullah/Geechee Corridor
 
Did you know Mount Pleasant is part of a federally designated Cultural Heritage Corridor? These areas combine natural, cultural, historic, and scenic resources to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape arising from patterns of human activity shaped by geography. There are 40 such cultural corridors acknowledged by Congress for their capacity to tell important stories about our nation. The national designation of a Corridor helps to preserve folklore, arts, crafts, and music. It is also an important aid in identifying and preserving sites, historical data, artifacts, and objects for the benefit and education of the public.
  
Designated by Congress in 2006, the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor extends from Wilmington, N.C. in the north to Jacksonville, FL in the south. It is home to a remarkable American culture known today as Gullah/Geechee, which reaches back into the seventeenth century.

The Battle at Hog Island
 
This Monday commemorates the 244th anniversary of the Battle for Hog Island. Hog Island was the name of what is now known as Patriots Point. As relations between the British government and South Carolina colonials deteriorated through the summer of 1775, colonists seized Fort Johnson from British control on September 14 of that year. Royal Governor William Campbell then dissolved the Commons House of Assembly and fled to the 16-gun HMS Tamar, anchored in Charleston harbor. Along with other British warships in the outer harbor, the Tamar harassed and seized merchant ships coming to Charleston, prompting the Provincial Congress to purchase the merchant schooner, Defense, and convert her into the first warship of the South Carolina Navy.
