Cabbage Row

The section of Church St. was the inspiration for "Catfish Row" in the Dubose Heyward story "Porgy." This story later became the basis for George Gershwin's opera "Porgy and Bess," a fictionalized glimpse of black life in Charleston during the 1920s. The character "Porgy" was based on an actual Charlestonian, Samuel Smalls. Private homes and specialty shops now line the area.
