Welcome to Edgefield, SC

The diverse backgrounds of these individuals led to clashes and conflicts that played out over the landscape of the old South. Today, the character of Edgefield is captured for visitors in its downtown shopping district, countless historic sites, local eateries, and a thriving artisan community.
