About Area

The source of the name "Goose Creek" has been lost to history. Some have theorized that the area was named after the gooseneck turns in the creek that extended off the Cooper River. Others say the name came from the prominence of geese in the waterway. It is possible that the name has Native American origins. No matter the source, since the late 1600s this area of the low country has been known as Goose Creek. Goose Creek Today Today over 30,000 people proudly call Goose Creek home. Residents enjoy the sense of community that has emerged over the area's long history, and appreciate the natural beauty that drew early settlers to Goose Creek. A new Municipal Complex built in 1999 is home to City Hall, the Police Department and the Municipal Court. The Department of Public Works continues to provide superior water, sanitation and maintenance service. The Fire Department has grown to staff two stations. Over two hundred years after it was first settled, Goose Creek is just beginning to realize its potential.
