One of the oldest neighborhoods in West Ashley, Wappoo Heights came into being even before the 1926 opening of the World War I Memorial Bridge. Part of the Ashley River Bridge District, the neighborhood is just across from the Crescent and next to South Windermere. Built between 1930 and 1990, many of the 150 stately homes in Wappoo Heights overlook marshland and tidal creeks. The central location of the community makes work, errands and play easy. Close to doctors’ offices, the beach, downtown Charleston, public and private schools, the library, restaurants, groceries and banks, the West Ashley enclave located in the 29407 zip code is popular among families and retirees.
