Berkeley County

Summerville is about 22 miles from Charleston, on line of the South Carolina Railway and in the midst of the pine woods.  It is situated on a ridge which extends across from the Cooper to the Ashley River, and which is remarkable for its healthfulness.  The climate is very agreeable;  in the winter being out of the influence of the ast winds, which frequently previal on the coast the temperature is mild and equable, and
in summer, though the days are warm, a delicious coolness pervades the atmosphere at night, which ensures refreshing sleep.  From these causes it is particularly beneficial to invalids or persons convalescing from illness.  The village had been settled a very long time, but like most places of the kind, has grown slowly.  It has now, however, reached quite a respectable size.  The houses are built far apart, so that each one is perfectluy private and like a country residence.

The many advantages which Summerville possesses are being rapidly realized, and each year the population is increasing.  There are several excellent boarding houses, which are generally full, and a fine hotel - the Dorchester - is now in course of erection, which, when complketed, will be equal in elegance to any in this country.  Churches of all the religious denominations, good schools and a well supplied market, furnish all the requisites for comfortable and pleasant living, and many families induced by these advantages, and by the cheapness of house rents, are taking up their residence there.  As the South Carolina Railway runs special trains fo rthe accommodation of the residents, it is perfectly convenient for buisness men who find it a great relief, after the fatigues of a day in the city to retreat to the quiet of Summerville.

The country around abounds with game, and the Summervillemen have always been renowned as hunters, and, although situated, as we have said, in a pine barren, there are many pretty walks and drives about the village, and on the banks of the Ashley, about four miles off, some spots of great beauty.  Population of Summerville is about 4,000.
