Welcome to Summerville, South Carolina!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Summerville, the “Flower Town in the Pines.” I have had the honor and privilege to serve this town for over 30 years and have witnessed its growth from a sleepy little town of approximately 3,000 citizens to a thriving community with a population well over 30,000.
Dorchester County is the fifth fastest growing county in the United States, and there are many reasons why our quality of life continues to be praised. Our public and private schools receive regional and national accolades for their academic and athletic success. We have an outstanding historic district, a thriving downtown shopping area, first rate medical facilities and many cultural and recreational amenities. Friendly neighborhoods, architecture and the unique culture of our community ensure that Summerville retains its small-town charm.
Our town is home to the Flowertown Festival as well as South Carolina's only five-star/five diamond inn and restaurant. Over 700 homes and buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places providing ample opportunity to stroll back in history. It is no secret that I believe our community is one of the finest places in the country to live, work, and raise a family.
With warmest wishes, I welcome you to Summerville!
