Home construction in the lower Mount Pleasant subdivision of Wakendaw Lakes began in 1968. The second phase of the neighborhood, Wakendaw Manor, began 10 years after that. Then came the Wakendaw East and Wakendaw on the Creek subsections in 1984 and 1985. Access to the neighborhood is via Mathis Ferry Road, which joins with Johnnie Dodds Blvd. for rapid travel to I-526 and the Ravenel Bridge. Wakendaw Lakes backs up to Hobcaw Creek, and the crown jewel of the community is its namesake, the gorgeous Wakendaw Lake, which sits right on the marsh. Homes measure approximately 1,700-3,000+ sq. ft, and residents enjoy use of the community boat dock, small park and waterfront walking path.
