Stationed near the Cooper River, Mazyck-Wraggborough was developed in the mid 1800's by seafaring folks looking to settle down in their dream homes. Today, the neighborhood contains a fine selection of properties with historic charm and modern renovations, and its downtown location affords residents access to fantastic restaurants, cozy bars, and Museum Mile.
Mazyck-Wraggborough was founded in the 18th century, after John Wragg inherited the land, 79 acres, from his father Joseph Wragg. It was John who named the area “Wraggborough”. He died before developing the land, but planned it out in detail, his plans were eventually carried out by his siblings. Hence, many of the streets in Mazyck-Wraggborough have names, such as Ann, Elizabeth, and Charlotte, all having been named for Wragg's family members. The family lived within the borough for a time, and later donated tree-lined green spaces for public use, such as Wragg Square and Wragg Mall, areas still present today.
Located above Calhoun Street on the Cooper River side of the Charleston peninsula, Mayzck-Wraggborough is near to the Upper King Street district, offering convenience to a variety of shops and restaurants. Historically rich, the borough is home to the Charleston Museum, also known as “America’s First Museum” founded in 1773. You'll also find Marion Square, which hosts weekend farmers markets all summer long as well as the Aiken-Rhett house built in 1818 famed for its size and fine interior furnishings, it is the most intact townhouse complex in downtown Charleston illustrating what early life was like on the peninsula.
