Moncks Corner is a South Carolina town in Berkeley County, South Carolina.
Moncks Corner was, during colonial time, a major settlement area of French Protestant Huguenots who came to South Carolina as a result of persecution in Europe. Many Berkeley and adjacent county surnames today evidence this French influence.
Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion was born near Moncks Corner, and is now honored by the naming of Francis Marion National Forest nearby.The Town of Moncks Corner, named for landowner Thomas Monck, dates back to 1728. It began as a trading post with a few taverns and stores. The Northeastern Railroad laid its tracks in 1856 and the train depot became the center of a new Town of Moncks Corner.
The Town of Moncks Corner was granted the trade mark "Capital of Santee Cooper Country" by the South Carolina Secretary of State September 9, 1999 and again October 21, 2004. The trade mark is a symbol of the abundant outdoor activities such as horseback riding, hiking, water sports, boating and the best freshwater fishing in the South.
