Explore the Historic West Ashley Neighborhood

West Ashley was the first settlement by the English colonists in 1670, yet the lands were inhabited by the Kiaway Indians. A few notable battles during the American Revolution took place in this area, such as the Siege of Charleston in 1870. West Ashley began developing in the early 1950s and was a popular destination from 1970-1980. Following the construction of I-526, West Ashley expanded and experienced large growth, both residential and commercial. Today, West Ashley has over 30,000 residents and remains a historical community with so much to do and see!

Named in alliance with its location west of the Ashley River, West Ashley is noted for its scenic waterfront views, marshes, and magnificent oak trees.
