Mount Pleasant’s Colorful History

Named an “All-America City” in 2010 and 2018 by the National Civic League in recognition of its commitment to civic engagement, inclusiveness, and innovation, Mount Pleasant is rich in culture and a sense of community. From oyster harvesting to indigo to the Gullah traditions that influence everyday life, this fast-growing town on the banks of the Cooper River has gone to great lengths to preserve its heritage.

Mount Pleasant’s Colorful History

Oysters have always been important to Mount Pleasant’s story. The SeeWee and other Native American tribes used oyster shells to produce a special kind of concrete called “tabby,” and streets throughout Mount Pleasant are still named “Hobcaw,” which means “between the waters.”

Indigo was once an important Mount Pleasant export. Eliza Lucas Pickney, for whom our restaurant is named, was responsible for the plan to export indigo profitably and was also the first woman to be inducted into the state’s Business Hall of Fame. Eliza was so well respected that President George Washington was a pallbearer at her funeral in 1793.

The Gullah live in the Lowcountry region of South Carolina and nurture a culture rich in African influences. Their traditions can be found throughout Mount Pleasant, ranging from hand-made crafts including the region’s iconic sweetgrass baskets, to cuisine and music passed down through generations.

Local By Design

From the lobby to guest rooms and beyond, the rich history of Mount Pleasant is reflected throughout the hotel. Arriving guests check in at a front desk made of white-washed shiplap pine, a nod to the wood found on ships in the nearby Charleston harbor. Rich shades of indigo and organic wood textures add depth to every surface, while artwork of oysters and jazz instruments pays homage to Gullah traditions.
