QFF 2021-01-08 - Mount Pleasant's Stages of Development
Posted on Jan 8th, 2021

On December 20, 1837, the village of Greenwich (est. 1766) merged with the village of Mount Pleasant (est. 1808) under an act of the South Carolina General Assembly to form the incorporated Town of Mount Pleasant. Hilliardsville and Lucasville followed in 1847 and 1853 respectively. By 1872, several settlements which had developed along Charleston Harbor, were incorporated as the Town of Mount Pleasant.
Post-World War II Mount Pleasant, like the rest of the nation, saw a significant increase in development. What had once been fields and farms north of the existing Town limits became housing. During the two decades after the War, the following neighborhoods were platted, developed, and annexed into the Town: Mt. Pleasant Homes, Moultrie Heights, Boundary Heights, Mount Pleasant Heights, Deer, Fairmont Terrace, Osceola Oaks, Osceola Heights, Jasper Terrace, Marjudo, Dawson Terrace, Myrtle Acres, Eastbridge Terrace, and The Highlands. The 1970’s brought the development of Snee Farm in the “hinterlands” of Mount Pleasant, the first major neighborhood paving the way for further growth in the northern section of the Town.
