Called the “birthplace of sweet tea.” The city was established by plantation owners in 1847 after the American Revolutionary War. These men and women wanted to reside in the Charleston area while escaping the seasonal insects and swamp fever. Starting with a population of 1,300 in the 1800’s has now grown to nearly 50,000 people.
Summerville has a charming historic downtown, which hosts the annual Flowertown Festival each Spring. This festival began in 1972 and has grown to be the largest arts and crafts festival in the state hosting over 200,000 visitors each year. The downtown area also features many restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, and parks, as well as a weekly farmers market.
