A True Picture of Southern Historical Charm ...


Edgefield County offers residents the best of both worlds – the charm and simplicity of a small-town lifestyle as well as big-city amenities like shopping, cultural arts, state-of-the art healthcare facilities and commercial airports, all within a one-hour drive. At a time when many people are seeking a simpler, more rural lifestyle, both for retirement and to raise a family, Edgefield County is increasingly becoming the locale of choice.

The “Ridge” has some of the best farmland in the state. City dwellers and retirees are increasingly moving into the countryside and into the smaller towns where a commute to the nearest city can be simple and short. Horse farms continue to proliferate as some of the crop land is converted for equestrian purposes.

New houses and residential communities – some with golf courses – dot the countryside. Other residents have chosen to renovate some of the graceful old homes places, returning them to their former glory.
