Phillips Community

This 3.84-acre wooded lot was purchased through the Charleston County Urban Greenbelt Program and ownership was transferred to the Phillips Community Association. Lowcountry Land Trust has the property under a permanent conservation easement. Located in an unincorporated area of Charleston County within Mount Pleasant, this historic African-American community of 600 residents will utilize the property for a cultural, Gullah Geechee interpretive community center and a site where Sweetgrass basket makers can gather to weave their craft.

Each fall, the Phillips Community hosts a Community Family Day open to local residents. This property continues to serve as an outdoor gathering place for community members.
