The Charleston neighborhood known as Harleston Village traces its roots back to the late colonial era, when the Harleston family subdivided a verdant tract called “Coming’s Point” along the banks of the Ashley River. Join CCPL’s historian, Dr. Nic Butler, for a review of the neighborhood’s early landscape, its suburban genesis in 1770, and its connection to the adjacent public green space that became known as Charleston’s “Colonial Common.”
