Did you know:

The site of Mount Pleasant was originally occupied by the Sewee Indians, an Alogonquian language-speaking tribe. The first white settlers arrived from England on July 6, 1680 under the leadership of Captain Florentia O’Sullivan. Captain O’Sullivan had been granted 2,340 acres, which included not only the island that bears his name, but also the land that was to become Mount Pleasant. On the earliest map of the time this area was called "North Point."

Now that you know how Sullivan's island got it's name, keep tuned for more posts in the coming weeks.
