General Information about South Charleston

South Charleston is a city in Kanawha County, West Virginia, U.S. The population was 13,100 at the 2007 census estimate. South Charleston was established in 1906, but not incorporated until 1919 by special charter enacted by the West Virginia Legislature. It is named because of its location on the south side of the Kanawha River, although it is actually west, not south, of the city of Charleston.
The city is serviced by Interstate 64, U.S. Route 60, U.S. Route 119, West Virginia Route 601 and West Virginia Route 214, and is bisected by the Kanawha River.
