Situated off Mathis Ferry Road, Scanlonville is an historic Mt. Pleasant neighborhood that stretches up from 7th Avenue to Molasses Creek and out to the Cooper River. It’s also known as Remley’s Point. The area was once a plantation owned by Remley and afterward, a freed slave community owned by Scanlon.
Today, the community’s African American roots remain. Many parts of the neighborhood are also being developed into expensive communities with luxury waterfront homes. Scanlonville real estate includes a mix of million-dollar waterfront estates and other executive homes, open lots for building, modest, well-maintained historic homes, some as small as 700 square feet, and conventional brick ranches built in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
