North Charleston, South Carolina

South Carolina Charleston County North Charleston

North Charleston is located primarily in Charleston County but the city limits also extend into Dorchester County. Developed as a planned industrial center during the early 1900s, the city incorporated in 1972 and immediately grew by annexation, doubling its population and land area within the first year.

In 1996, the closing of the Charleston Naval Base, long the largest civilian employer in South Carolina, delivered an economic blow to the entire region, but North Charleston pressed forward to establish a more diverse economy and identity. The success of the cultural arts center and coliseum complex, a professional hockey team, and a destination outlet mall helped to establish North Charleston as a thriving industrial city.

In October 2009, Boeing Aircraft announced the selection of North Charleston for its new 787 Dreamliner aircraft assembly and delivery prep center, positioning the city as one of the major aircraft centers of the world.

Charleston is the largest city near North Charleston. Here is a map of the Charleston area.
