Meggett, South Carolina


South Carolina Charleston County Meggett


Meggett is located in Charleston County. In the early 20th century, it was a thriving agricultural community. A spur of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad ran through town and terminated at a large wharf on Yonges Island. Produce was shipped by water and rail. At one time Meggett was the cabbage capital of the world, shipping millions of cabbage seedlings a day all over the country.

The town's history, which dates from the 1920s, tells how a single telephone operator – known as "Central" – served Meggett, Yonges Island, Ravenel, Adams Run, and the area that would become Hollywood. There were a number of party lines with 8-10 subscribers for each line. The system is remembered to have been remarkably efficient.

The bank was established by a prominent citizen, Mr. Geraty, to give his wife a project after the death of their only child. They operated the bank together for over 30 years. It was the only bank located in the southern part of Charleston County and one of only a few in the state to remain open during the Great Depression.

Charleston is the largest city near Meggett. Here is a map of the Charleston area.
