“We started in Charleston and drove up the coast to Pawleys Island,” she says. “9/11 happened while we were there, and we decided that it was time to think about moving from New York. We bought a historic home in Georgetown that we refurbished, and lived there for twelve years.
“But we really craved the urban lifestyle, the restaurants, theatre and walking, and we decided that the Market Common really fit our lifestyle.
“So we moved there in 2017, and we’ve been here ever since. We just love living here. We’ve met dear friends. And boldly— we sold our cars. We take Ubers if necessary, or catch rides with friends.”
While living in Georgetown, Lynn was very active in the community. He wrote a monthly column for The Georgetown Times on economics, government and politics.
He served as president of the Georgetown Business Association, which was formed to promote the area, but wasn’t adding as much value as Lynn knew it could.
After becoming president of the association, Lynn raised $30K to have Clemson University’s Center for Economic Development conduct a charrette for the area— three days of planning and assessment in which they interviewed stakeholders and forged ideas about how to develop the area economically.
