Cannonborough in Downtown Charleston, SC

upper king street near cannonborough

Cannonborough is still seeing large revitalization efforts as home buyers look to the northern sections of the Charleston Peninsula for affordable alternatives to the pricier southern neighborhoods. Cannonborough is located just below the Crosstown (Highway 17), bordered by Bee and Spring Streets. Residents can easily walk to the trendy shops and restaurants of upper King Street (pictured right). Some of our favorites include Hominy Grill on Rutledge Avenue, Basil (Thai) on King, and Rue de Jean (French with Southern flavors) on John Street. Also within walking distance is the weekly Farmers’ Market in Marion Square. Every Saturday morning from April to December, this park (pictured below) comes alive with the market's freshly made crepes, pasta, gyros, and kettle corn – not to mention local produce, flowers, and art work. Marion Square hosts many outdoor events throughout the year and is especially popular during the annual Spoleto arts festival. Cannonborough is a good neighborhood to consider for investors wanting to rent to MUSC and College of Charleston students, do-it-yourself buyers looking for fixer uppers, and also buyers wanting a good deal on a home without sacrificing location.

The streets making up Cannonborough today housed lumber and rice mills in the late 1700’s. In fact, the neighborhood gets its name from Daniel Cannon, a mechanic and carpenter who owned several of these mills. During the mid 1800’s, the wetlands and creeks that were used to power the mills were filled in so that the area could be converted to residential homes as the economy transitioned out of an agricultural heritage. The majority of this new population was made up of immigrants, freed black slaves, and Jewish citizens. The People’s Federation Bank (Charleston's first African American bank) on St. Philip Street and the Beth Elohim Coming Street Cemetery (the oldest Jewish burial ground in the South) are important landmarks of the area. Although Cannonborough does not boast the mansions and numerous historic markers seen in many of the other Downtown neighborhoods, this community offers a vibrant history of the everyday man living in Charleston during the 19th and 20th centuries.
