The Historic Park that is Alhambra Hall
Alhambra Hall. A beautiful park rich in history and character. Alhambra Hall is located in the Old Village in Mount Pleasant off of Middle street towards the end of Center Street along the Charleston Harbor. This park was originally constructed I 1847 by Charles Jugnot and Oliver Hillard who were the owners of the Mount Pleasant Ferry. They originally intended this waterfront green space to be a picnic ground and summer retreat for locals and visitors of the area. They constructed a dance hall where people would congregate to let loose and enjoy local musicians. The building that stands today was constructed in 1937 and is maintained by the city as recreational faculty.
This area is mainly used by those lucky enough to live in the Old Village, however Alhambra Hall still attracts outsiders for various functions. The building can be rented for family reunions, banquets and even weddings. Across the street from the building is a playground and picnic area that’s perfect for family outings. This is a destination where people congregate to exercise, walk their dogs or relax and enjoy some of the best views the Charleston Harbor has to offer. Alhambra Hall is one of the Old Village's most treasured and well kept landmarks and is a must see for those who have yet to venture out that way.
