The Charleston Green Party is proud to have adopted 5th Avenue and adjoining streets in Maryville/AAdopt a Highwayshleyville as part of the Adopt a Highway project.  Unlike most Adopt a Highway routes, these streets are residential.  This means we will have the opportunity to chat with residents who may be in their yards or on their porches as we work on their street. I think this will make our work even more rewarding.

Our first trash pickup is this Saturday, May 30 at 11:00am.  Meet us in front of the Emanuel AME Church, which is on the corner of 5th Avenue and St Andrews Blvd in West Ashley.  We will have the orange vests and orange trash bags – bring water and sunscreen!  Please let us know if you will be joining us – you can leave a comment here, email us at charlestongreens@gmail.com, or give us a call at 843-926-1750.

Maryville, SC historical marker

Maryville, SC historical marker

This historical marker sits on the corner of 5th Avenue and St Andrews Blvd on the grounds of the historic Emanuel AME Church.  Chartered in 1886, Maryville was a prosperous black community – in true South Carolina fashion, the state legislature punished responded to their success by revoking their town charter in 1936.
