We're glad you stopped by to visit our website. The Town of James Island is a beautiful, unique island in South Carolina with a rich history and bright future. Nestled amongst the deep blue waters of the Charleston Harbor and the meandering Stono and Folly Rivers, James Island boasts scenic marsh views and a plethora of majestic trees. Once covered in farmland, James Island is now primarily a residential community that has somehow managed to protect that small-town feel its residents and visitors know and enjoy.

Recent guidance changes from the CDC and South Carolina DHEC allow us new flexibility in mask use based on individual vaccine status.  As always, we encourage everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible.  You may locate options in the community via the SC DHEC vaccine finder here.


Updated Face Mask Policy at Town Hall is as follows:

-Anyone wishing to wear a mask, regardless of vaccine status, is welcome to continue doing so.

-Vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear a mask, indoors or outside.

-Non-vaccinated individuals have the option to wear or not wear a mask outside.

-Non-vaccinated individuals must continue wearing a mask inside while around others.

Only 3 people are allowed in at a time. We encourage residents to still contact Town Hall by phone and email. Please click here for a staff contact list.
