Park Circle is the focus of the master plan for North Charleston, designed by W.B. Marquis in 1912. One of the first modern planned communities in S.C., this 1500-acre development was completed shortly before World War II and grew with the wartime activity at the Charleston Navy Yard. Its four major avenues - Buist, Dupont, Montague, and Rhett - radiate from within Park Circle and were named for the developers who acquired and planned the neighborhood.
