When Charleston was established, five English style villages developed along the harbor, east of the Cooper River now known as the Old Village.  The Town of Mount Pleasant was established by the combination of these original villages in 1803 by James Hibben took its name from original “Mount Pleasant” plantation house, known as Hibben House.

In 1979, Mount Pleasant (re)established the Old Village, a 37 block area that is bounded by Shem Creek (north), Whilden Street (east), the old bridge and marshland (south), and the Charleston Harbor (west).  The purpose To protect, preserve, and enhance the architecture of the Old Village and to manage growth and development.  While historically the area is well defined, depending on where you’re standing and who you're talking to Mount Pleasant, Old Mt. Pleasant, and the Old Village can take different forms.

The lively deep waterway Shem Creek on the north end of the Old Village Historic District provides direct access to the Charleston Harbor.  While the rest of the area experienced significant growth and development over the past 30 years, the Old Village has remained a quiet residential area of small and large houses.  Shade trees line the sides of the streets as you walk past some street side homes with small yards, while others have expansive of lawns.

And the The Mount Pleasant Farmers Market which runs Tuesdays from April  to October, should not be missed.  Old Mt. Pleasant is an ideal Low Country location for families and those who want to be next to Sullivan’s Island beaches and still have close proximity to Charleston’s downtown.
