According to the Town of Mount Pleasant Historical Commission, Haddrell’s Point extended along the waterfront from Shem Creek to Cove Inlet and was named for the early settler, George Haddrell, the release stated. The land bordering Shem Creek became home to important industries including factories, canneries, as well as rice and sawmills which drew power from the tides of the creek. With ceremonial fanfare, President George Washington embarked from Haddrell’s Point to Charleston during his Southern tour in 1791.
