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 provides us the opportunity to chat with residents who may be in their yards or on their porches as we work on their streets.  It certainly makes our work even more rewarding.

Our first trash pickup was Saturday, May 30, 2009.  This pickup and each succeeding pickup have all been huge successes.  Pickups occur quarterly.  Our next pickup date is Saturday, September 10, 2016. Meet us at 10:30am 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 or on our homepage, email us at charlestongreens@gmail.com, or give us a call at 843-926-1750.

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.
