The river was the first designated South Carolina Scenic River in the Lowcountry. The Ashley River was named for Anthony Ashley Cooper, who was Earl of Shaftesbury in the 1600s and one of South Carolina‘s eight Lords Proprietors. He was also an important philosopher of his time.

Special thanks to Larry Gleason of Aiken, who captured this shot while visiting Magnolia Plantation near Charleston.

Ashley River – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Ashley River, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
