Third Thursday

Nexton in Summerville SC

Summerville DREAM partnerted with the Town of Summerville for the Red, White, and blue on the green. sponsored by Nexton.

 

Just wandering around Summerville, you can’t help but fall in love with it. So that’s what we did. We took our cameras to parks, historical sites, galleries, boutiques, cafes and, yes, the Brewhouse. We walked up to people and asked them what they love about this town. And did we get some answers.

About Summerville DREAM

About Summerville DREAM

Celebrating our 23rd Year in Downtown Summerville! 

Affiliated with Main Street South Carolina and the National Trust for Historic Preservation Main Street Center, Summerville DREAM promotes community pride and involvement through event coordination, business education and advocacy, support for aesthetic improvements, fostering tourism, and marketing Historic Downtown Summerville to residents and guests.

In 1991, Downtown Summerville, like many small towns across the country, was facing hard times; 40% of the buildings were vacant. Lifelong residents Rick Sutton and Cada McCoy rolled up their sleeves and did something about it. They drew together several hundred people and spent a year meeting, talking, exploring, and researching. The result was the formation of DREAM, the non-profit organization dedicated to the revitalization of the downtown area. Since 1992, DREAM has helped to bring focus and support to Summerville and its Historic Downtown district.

Operating Budget

Summerville DREAM is nonprofit organization supported by charitable donations from individuals, families, businesses, and organizations, and grants and donations from the Town of Summerville. The work our volunteers do on behalf of downtown Summerville wouldn't be possible without the generosity of our annual donors.
