The Ansonborough neighborhood is conveniently located in Downtown Charleston. Known as Charles Town’s first suburb, the neighborhood takes its name from George Anson, a naval captain who patrolled the waters of South Carolina to protect the region from pirates. With the pirate threat completely under control, Ansonborough is now one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Charleston. Close to shopping, water front parks, the Gaillard Auditorium and the Aquarium, this charming neighborhood offers unparalleled access to everything Charleston has to offer while still retaining a neighborhood feel. Ansonborough’s boundaries are George St. to the North, Pinckney St. to the South, East Bay St. to the East, and Meeting St. to the West.
In the 1960’s, Ansonborough was nationally-recognized as a model for historic preservation and rehabilitation. It has maintained that distinction to this day. Walk through the old suburb and you will notice beautiful walled lots with landscaped gardens and 18th and 19th century single and double houses built in Greek revival and Georgian styles. Town, carriage houses and condominiums are also common.
