Daniel Island

Like many other seemingly stand-alone towns in the Charleston area, Daniel Island is not really a town at all. Rather, it is a part of the city Charleston with its own identity. Interesting enough, it was annexed in its entirety by Berkeley County. To some, Daniel Island refers only to the award-winning 4,000-acre master planned community situated between the Cooper and Wando Rivers. To others, Daniel Island includes that, plus a significant area that proceeds up Clements Ferry Road toward Cainhoy.

The planned community was previously owned by the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation and had served as a farming, ranching and private hunting preserve. The opening of Rte. 526 in 1992 made this large chunk of Charleston, adjacent to Mt. Pleasant and Hanahan, extremely desirable, as it became just a short drive from both Downtown and the region's major airport. The development exploded since the land changed ownership in 1997. Today, almost 10,000 residents live, work and recreate where animals still roamed freely, less than a quarter of a century ago.
