Living in Moncks Corner, South Carolina

Moncks Corner, South Carolina, is a small town that is in some ways as unusual as its name. The town of less than 10,000 residents is named after Thomas Monck, a 1700s landowner. It’s a place where you can one day be riding a boat through cypress swamps and the next be wandering the gardens of a Roman Catholic abbey. Moncks Corner was historically a crossroads between inland communities and coastal Charleston, and today, it boasts a thriving downtown with a variety of local shops. Major employers such as Volvo and Boeing are a short commute away, and South Carolina’s award-winning beaches are close enough for easy day trips.
