While Moncks Corner is not as well known as famous Charleston, this wonderful community is cherished by Berkeley County residents. They enjoy easy access to the finest beaches and golf courses that the Lowcounty offers within the context of a slower pace and more relaxed lifestyle. Ancient moss-draped oaks grace this historic area, where pristine waterways teeming with fish beckon sport anglers. Modern healthcare facilities, excellent schools, and a strong business community are just a few of the advantages. Beautiful Cypress Gardens draws thousands of visitors each year to miles of hiking trails and flat-bottom boat tours. The nearby Mepkin Abbey was founded in 1949 on the bank of the Cooper River, and historic sites abound. The Biggin Church Ruins, the grave of General Francis Marion, and the Nesbitt House are among the treasures from yesterday.
