History of Downtown Charleston Radcliffeborough

Radcliffeborough began as farmland purchased and surveyed by Thomas Radcliffe in 1786. Thomas' estate and his widow, Lucretia continued to develop the borough after Thomas was lost at sea in 1806.

In 1811, the Third Episcopal Church was built on four lots donated by Mrs. Radcliffe for this purpose. St. Paul's convenient local and grand appearance attracted rice planters from the neck to worship alongside homes built by merchants and mechanics, several free black families - before the Civil War - as well as slaves living apart from their masters and newly freed slaves - after the Civil War.

Today, Radcliffeborough is as racially and economically mixed as it was then but its boundaries have grown from its original eight blocks to span from King Street to Ashley Avenue and from Bee Street, to Calhoun. It's topography has changed as well and would seem incredibly different to Thomas Radcliffe. In his time and even up to 1846, Calhoun Street did not exist. The area that would eventually become Calhoun was a millpond and Comings Creek ran through the land where the Cathedral of St. Paul now stands.
