Park Circle, North Charleston–A Best Old-House Neighborhood!

From the Post and Courier article:

“The editors of This Old House magazine chose Park Circle as one of 61 great spots, based on architectural diversity, craftsmanship of the homes and the area’s preservation momentum– plus walkability, safety and a sense of community.

This Old House praised Park Circle for its ‘hundreds of lovingly crafted — albeit more modest and affordable — old houses surrounding a 30-plus-acre park filled with baseball fields, playgrounds, and a weekly farmer’s market.’

It also praised the shops and restaurants along East Montague Avenue, new area schools and easy commutes. Mayor Keith Summey, a longtime Park Circle resident who built a new home there several years ago, said the city is honored to make the list.

‘We consider it validation that Park Circle and the city of North Charleston are truly a great place to live, work and play.’

John Hohn, one of Gibbs’ friends, said the sense of community is what mostly distinguishes Park Circle. ‘There’s no reason to travel anymore. Anywhere you go you’re going to see someone you know and have a great time.’ “
