Once a rural retreat known for its farming, shrimping, and ancient moss-covered trees, the neighborhood of James Island has changed with the growth of Charleston. A steady influx of newcomers to this South Carolina area has seen an increase in well-educated residents who are interested in sustainable development, are attracted to the coastal community, and often participate in the arts and culture of Charleston’s center.

This triangular sea isle is bordered by Wappoo Creek and Charleston Harbor to the north and Folly Beach and Morris Island to the east, with John’s Island and the Stono River to the west. Many housing options exist on James Island, from stately homes to modest apartments.

A great deal of history is tied to the island. The Civil War began on James Island when Confederates fired on the Union Army at Fort Sumter along its northern coast.

The most famous landmark, McLeod Plantation, is steeped in historical importance. Dating to 1671, this James Island plantation retains its wood-frame main house plus five slave quarters, a barn, dairy, gin house for processing cotton, kitchen, and cemetery. The McLeod Plantation is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Another feature of interest to James Island residents and visitors is the Morris Island Lighthouse, decommissioned in 1962.

For recreation, residents of James Island can enjoy the beauty of nature at James Island County Park. In addition to crabbing, residents have access to picnic areas, miles of trails, sand volleyball, salt-water fishing, and horseshoe pits. Kayaks and bikes are available to rent, and there is a splash fountain in season. Even dogs can enjoy the park in the off-leash area.
