The South Carolina Arts Commission has given a $14,319 grant to the town of Mount Pleasant to assist in building a sweetgrass basket pavilion at the new Memorial Waterfront Park. According to Mayor Harry Hallman Jr, sweetgrass basket weaving has been part of Mount Pleasantâ€™s community for more than 300 years. The tradition has been passed down from generation to generation.
Sweetgrass basket-making is the official handcraft of the state of South Carolina.
