Elliottborough, along with the smaller Cannonborough enclave to its west, is a historic downtown Charleston neighborhood located along the main road through the peninsula (Highway 17). Established in the mid-19th century, the neighborhood had been in a severe state of decline since the 1950’s, but along with the revitalization of Charleston has come a new beginning for the eclectic mid-peninsula borough.
Many of the dilapidated 1800’s homes of Elliottborough are being renovated and occupied by families and students. Do-it-yourselfers and investors have a variety of fixer-uppers from which to choose, and the homes that have been improved are gorgeous. It’s urban downtown living with an reasonable price tag.
