Mayflower Court

The Mayflower Court Project involved moving 14 World War II-era cottages from a church property to a 1.6 acre tract of land donated by Charleston County Housing and Redevelopment Authority. The project provides elderly people with affordable housing in a park-like environment.

Cottages were completely rehabilitated through the combined efforts of the Authority, The City of Charleston, Charleston County, Enston Homes Foundation, S.C. State Housing Finance & Development Authority, First Federal of Charleston, First Sterling Financial, Inc., Federal Home Bank of Atlanta, and the Lowcountry Housing and Economic Development Foundation, Inc. The project provides elderly people with affordable housing in a park-like environment.
