Annexation

  • Advocates in a South Carolina community fear proposed annexations could hurt efforts to win historic recognition for the area. The Post and Courier reports the Phillips community has been seeking a historic designation from Charleston County and inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places that would give the area higher standing when federal projects are reviewed. Community leaders said requests to annex about 19 acres of land into the town of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, could make them lose the chance at historic recognition. Phillips was settled in the late 1800s by Black residents, many of whom had been enslaved.
