Kershaw County Living

Julian Burns
Dear Friend:

Kershaw County is a vibrant community where historic preservation intersects progress. Our population of 62,516 is spread over about 750 square miles, and we enjoy a high quality of life in a tranquil setting just minutes from the metropolitan bustle of our state capital, Columbia.

Whether you are considering visiting Kershaw County for an afternoon or a few days, you will find a delightful blend of history, progressive government, and plentiful recreation and leisure activities.  From the shores of Lake Wateree, to the mills of Boykin, to the charming antebellum homes of downtown Camden, to the historic Woodward Air Field (site of a World War II training base), there is truly something for everyone here.

Kershaw County government has been working steadily to ensure the preservation of historic sites such as the Battle of Camden, to develop new recreational facilities across our county, and to provide infrastructure for future heritage and sports tourism events here. Our citizens enjoy a high quality of life in a rural setting, just minutes away from the amenities of several larger cities.  Kershaw County Council welcomes you.

Julian Burns
