To the west of James Island is Johns Island, the largest island in SC. Originally a farming community, the island’s history dates back centuries as the site of several prominent plantations, producing much of the area’s rice, indigo, and cotton exports. Farming still exists today, and with the rise in popularity of local fruits, meats, and vegetables the island has experienced a rebirth in this historic function. The island’s close proximity to Downtown Charleston and beautiful scenic property make it a prime location. It is separated from the mainland by the tidal Stono River, which forms part of the Intracoastal Waterway.
