Well Established: Park Circle is the focus of the master plan for North Charleston, designed by W.B. Marquis in 1912. One of the first modern planned communities in South Carolina, this 1500 acre development was completed shortly before World War II and grew with wartime activity at the Charleston Naval Shipyard. Its four major avenues – Buist, Durant, Montague and Rhett – radiate from within Park Circle and were named for the developers who acquired and planned the neighborhood. – The City of North Charleston and the North Charleston Heritage Corridor, 2002.
