Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

The rapid growth of the Town of Mount Pleasant has fueled the construction of a wealth of housing in new residential developments and planned communities. With a population of 60,000, Mount Pleasant is now the sixth largest municipality in South Carolina. Due to a concern about overburdening town infrastructure, the Town has limited the issuance of single-family home permits quarterly. So existing homes are very desirable.

What is the significance of sweetgrass baskets in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina?
Sweetgrass basket making has been a part of the Mount Pleasant community for more than 300 years. Brought to the area by slaves from West Africa, basket making is a traditional art form which has been passed on from generation to generation. They were made from the soft, pliable grass commonly called Sweetgrass because of its pleasant fragrance, similar to the smell of fresh hay. Today, it is one of the oldest art forms of African origin in the United States. Baskets may be purchased from the artists everyday at roadside basket stands on US Highway 17 North in Mount Pleasant.
