About Courier Square

Founded on a Legacy of Success

Our origins trace back to 1894 when renowned Charleston businessman, Arthur Manigault, founded the Evening Post. In the decades that followed, Evening Post grew into a thriving real estate, multimedia, and healthcare company.

Courier Square and its subsidiary, Evening Post Industries, proudly carry this legacy into modern day real estate and marina investment and development. Our longstanding presence in Lowcountry business development positions us to find profitable niches with long-term potential in both the real estate and marina markets.
