Downtown Summerville – Summerville, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Dorchester County Photos  |  Downtown Summerville

Downtown Summerville is a thriving commercial area which invites residents and visitors to dine in one of its various restaurants, shop in one of its many independent stores, savor a root beer float at historic Guerin’s Pharmacy, or even buy insurance or real estate. A popular art gallery and scheduled events the third Thursday of each month make the town a burgeoning arts community, drawing Summervillians from their Victorian homes and surrounding suburbs to gather on the town square for concerts, art walks, and dramatic performances.

Pictured above is the pedestrian street known as Short Central. The street is paved with bricks from the 1920s, unearthed in 2001 during a paving project. The discovery of the bricks led to the town’s decision to block the road from vehicles and create a pedestrian path that leads people from historic neighborhoods to bustling town square. Along the way are diverse shops, year-round al fresco dining, and a tavern. Frequently artists set up booths along the brick walkway and showcase their unique wares.

The photo above, captured in 1906, shows a downtown square laid out for commercialism and socializing. The square, as well as the rest of downtown Summerville, has become a business destination for locals and a hub of activity during town events.
