King Street Alexandria has a wikipedia page. Did charleston copy Alexandria's street name? (Both cities are historic)

Good question, considering that VA and SC were being settled at nearly the same time, and with our settlements being on the Ashley River (Charles Town Landing) I doubt we had a King Street until the early 1700's. I'll look it up and see what I can find.

Here's a 1733 map of Charles Town and as you can see there's no streets named yet, that could be King Street based on looking at topography maps of today and comparing locations. So I'll have to check further!
