Founded in 1735 as a railroad town, Moncks Corner maintains the small town feel while still hosting bustling opportunities for growth. With just 9,873 residents, and median housing sales are $160,900, Moncks Corner continues to grow as new industry brings jobs to Berkeley County, like Volvo and WestRock. Moncks Corner is just north of Goose Creek and 45 minutes from Downtown Charleston.
The beautiful natural landscape of the area is preserved by local historic societies as well as the state, proffering many opportunities for families to get out and have fun. Santee Canal State Park, Mepkin Abbey and Lion's Beach are just a few scenic places this town has to offer. With two local parks and a new recreational facility/ballpark local families can spend their days outdoors enjoying the natural beauty of their town. The preserved and renovated old train depot, now known as The Depot, hosts a Saturday farmer’s market every weekend, offers a meeting space for local events and maintain a welcome and visitor’s center.
