James Island

Charleston, SC Area Real Estate

James Island is one of South Carolina's most urban Sea Islands; nearly half of the island sits within Charleston city limits. The island is separated from peninsular downtown Charleston by the Ashley River, from the mainland by Wappoo Creek and the Wappoo Cut, and from Johns Island by the Stono River. It lies inshore of Morris Island and Folly Beach. Visiting James Island you will discover rarely seen places where stories of our nation's founding and the antebellum South unfold.
