Once, along these broad avenues,  antebellum sea captains  built their dream houses, and today,  the dreams of finding peninsular Charleston’s most stylishly unique address come true.  The  charming openness of  Mazyck-Wraggborough is no Second Presbuterian Church in Wraggboroughaccident ,  as this area was planned to exquisite detail  in the 1780’s for the wealthy and their kin. In fact, seven streets names are for the children of 18th century landholder Joseph Wragg, whose heirs kept the community/family spirit alive by donating tree-lined green spaces known as Wragg Square and Wragg Mall.

Wragg Mall was popular during antebellum times as an area of trees and gardens flanked by townhouses, two which survive along the mall, part of a group once known as the “Seven Wages” for the rental income they supplied the famed Aiken-Rhett mansion that is now a museum house operated by the Historic Charleston Foundation at the end of the square. Today, the shaded oak promenade at Wragg Square is being restored to its classic purpose as part of the Charleston Parks Conservancy program, which is dedicated to preserve the rich horticultural heritage of the city’s green spaces and intrinsic community connection as a means of enhancing neighborhood lifestyle, beauty and recreational interaction.

Homes and churches dating to the early 1800’s are built on the site of colonial-era pastures,  where  Charleston’s “sons of liberty” first gathered to plant the seed of the American Revolution.   Some of the finest early architecture  is featured in the Manigault House museum and the historic Second Presbyterian Church, and throughout Mazyck-Wraggborough,  wrought iron gates,  elaborate  cornices, and stately piazzas still tie the area to its prestigious past.
At its periphery, however,  Mazyck-Wraggborough  embraces the future,  bordered by the classy Charleston Music Hall, the attractive  Charleston Visitors’ Center complex,the Gaillard Auditorium,  and the brand-new Charleston Maritime Center complex.
Quiet, roomy and historic along its inner streets, and a central location for arts and activities and events all around,  Mazyck-Wraggborough offers a stylish and practical Charleston address.  

Notable Homes and Buildings and fun facts:  The haunted-looking brick structure at the corner of Charlotte and Elizabeth streets includes the ghosts of several church congregations and perhaps on famous architect. The 1859 building was designed by Charleston architect Francis D. Lee for the Episcopal diocese, and originally named St. Luke’s Church. Lee’s plan was a grand design with a 210-foot steeple and stuccoed exterior, neither of which came to pass as the Civil War interrupted the construction. Lee’s doomed design may have set the tone for the church, which suffered from decreasing membership and was sold in 1950 as the Fourth Tabernacle Baptist Church. The legacy of unfulfilled hopes continued to haunt the church, which was closed and put up for sale in 2003, drawing attention of a theater group that wanted the old church for its performances. The complete loss of its original intent rekindled some supportive spirits in the city to stop the sale, but the old structure continues to exist in limbo, much as it has since its ill-fated beginnings.
