Where the Living is Easy
Welcome to Summerville, South Carolina... a town where charm and southern hospitality blend gracefully with a modern and progressive outlook. Summerville's lush public parks, friendly town square and lovingly preserved historic homes and gardens reflect its reputation as a "Flowertown in the Pines." Here you'll find natural beauty, community spirit, history, a mild climate and a special sense of civic pride. More importantly, Summerville is a friendly town, and the qualities that drew Lowcountry planters to this "Pineland Village" in the early 1800s are still very much alive in Summerville today. A graceful balance between old and new is maintained, and, along with its picturesque history, Summerville offers its residents living communities, shopping centers, recreational activities and excellent medical facilities.
The community still gathers at Towne Square for fireworks on the 4th of July. Friday night high school football draws a spirited, overflowing crowd. In April of each year, thousands of visitors assemble in Azalea Park to view the blooming azaleas and camellias and enjoy the annual Flowertown Festival. In May, crowds come to Azalea Park for "Sculpture in the South," the annual exhibit and sale where nationally
known artists display fine art works of representational sculpture, creating an outdoor sculpture gallery. In early December, the holiday season is ushered in when town folks meet at Town Square for the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting when thousands of white lights are turned on to brighten our downtown area.
It's all right here in Summerville... beautiful residential areas, great restaurants, elegant shops, outdoor recreation, excellent medical facilities and historic sites... the amenities are endless! In Summerville, you will find a warm and welcoming community filled with a sense of undying respect for its past and a relentless commitment to its future.
