July 12, 2019, Bluffton, S.C. – The Town of Bluffton is seeking public input into the preservation plan of the Squire Pope Carriage House, located on the Wright Family Property. The Town and Beaufort County bought this property at 111 Calhoun Street in 2017 with the purpose of rehabilitating the Squire Pope Carriage House and converting the property into a public park.
As a first step, the Town is working with historic preservation consultants, Meadors, Inc. This Charleston-based firm is seeking input from the Bluffton community about the public’s desires for this historic structure. Meadors, Inc. representatives also developed the preservation plan for the Oyster Factory Park’s Garvin-Garvey House.
The Town is encouraging the Bluffton community to fill out a quick survey about the Squire Pope Carriage House. The survey can be accessed via this link:
The survey is short and is expected to take less than five minutes to complete. Survey responses should be submitted by July 26. Residents are encouraged to share this link with others. The objective is to receive feedback for this project from the Bluffton community.
The survey responses will be shared at the August 8 stakeholders meeting at 6 p.m. at Town Hall. The public is welcome to attend.
