Six Degrees of Separation – Noisette Area to the Masters Tournament

Over the next 6 blogs and before the end of the Masters Tournament on April 11, we will be connecting the area known as the Noisette Community to the upcoming Masters tournament. This will be a history story of sorts and will discuss Park Circle, Liberty Hill, The Navy Yard, Chicora Park and more.

The Noisette community/ North Charleston area was occupied by Indians before Europeans started arriving in the late 1600’s.  After the arrival of the Europeans, plantations were strategically set up on the Charleston Harbors and rivers.  The Upper Neck area bordering the Cooper River included Marshlands Plantation among several others.  Retreat Plantation aka “The Retreat” later became known as Turnbull Plantation.  Parts of Turnbull later became a Park which we will discuss in future blogs.  Oak Grove Plantation bordered a creek feeding into the Cooper and Paul Noisette bought this plantation in 1865.  This is where our story begins.  Stay tuned for future posts as we connect Noisette to the Masters Golf Tournament.
