The Terrace was originally farmlands and Washington horse racetrack. The area was then transformed into an fairground for the 1901 Charleston Exposition. Afterwards, the Wilbur and Allan families subdivided part of the site to create the popular, walkable residential community now called Hampton Park Terrace. The neighborhood is listed the National Register of Historic Places. 13 Kenilworth is just 3 homes away from Hampton Park,Charleston's biggest green-space, with its cycling track, walking paths, and acres of beautiful plantings. Allan Park, the Citadel, the Riverdogs ballpark, Huger Street's restaurant district, and the Ashley River are all within walking distance. There is no better neighborhood in downtown Charleston.
