West Ashley has long and historic roots as one of the first places in the Carolinas to see permanent settlement, starting in 1670. With a history spanning over 300 years, it’s no surprise that you’ll find charming cottages, locally owned shops, and hundred-year-old trees dotting the area. Today, West Ashley has made a name for itself as an area with great green spaces within the neighborhood and plenty of local shopping, dining, and entertainment right on your doorstep.
