The vision for Edwards Place was to create a small, community-oriented neighborhood to fit into the context of a larger historical neighborhood, while still maintaining as much green space as possible.
A significant feature of Edwards Place was the development of The Preserve.
The Preserve is a 1.1 acre private, maintained, and gorgeously landscaped green space. There are shaded walking paths weaving through the Grand Oaks and an outdoor pavilion with a fireplace for unwinding with friends and family.
This picturesque property was the childhood home of James B. Edwards, the beloved former South Carolina governor.
Edwards enjoyed a long and storied life of service in the military, medicine, politics, and education. In addition to his role as governor, he was a state senator, secretary of energy, and university president.
This family farmstead held wonderful memories for Edwards and he often spoke of hunting, fishing, and playing in the woods there during his youth.
