About North Charleston
North Charleston is South Carolina's largest city. It is located in Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley counties in South Carolina's coastal low country region. It was not incorporated as a city until 1972. The residents of the North Charleston area were concerned that their area was not developing properly and could get much worse. When the city was incorporated, It was the 9th largest city in South Carolina. With annexation and planned growth the city grew in population and became a major industrial center. Boeing Aircraft bought Vought aircraft and set up an assembly line for the 787 Dreamliner. This plant makes parts of the fuselage (main body) of the Dreamliner. Today, Boeing is looking for a second assembly line for the 787. North Charleston is one potential site for this assembly line. The Charleston International Airport is located in the City of North Charleston. The Charleston Naval Base was built in North Charleston in the early 1900s. After 9 decades of operations the base was closed in 1996. The end of the Cold War led to this. Nowadays, parts of the dry dock and base are now leased out to government and private contractors. Other parts of the base were converted to parks. Despite the fact that it has been a city less than 40 years, North Charleston has a rich history based on its manufacturing background. There are several hotels in the area that cater to the city's prosperous tourism industry based on this history.
