Quick Fact Friday 2019-12-27
Posted on Dec 27th, 2019

Hibben obtained a ferry charter and opened Hibben's Ferry - the first ferry boat service to connect Haddrell's Point, the area between Shem Creek and the cove at the end of Pitt Street, to Charleston. Later, Haddrell's Point was called the village of Mount Pleasant, but people often used the old name. Georgetown Road, the area's major roadway, ran to the Ferry House and functioned as part of the main travel-mail route to the North.
