August 2010 Feature of the Month

South Carolina's Counties - from the mountains to the sea and everywhere in between!

    Do you know how many Counties there are in South Carolina? (Hint: The answer is below!) In what part of our State is Oconee County located? How about Colleton County? Do you know the County Seat of Marlboro County or Calhoun County? How many State Representatives represent Laurens County? How many Senators represent a part of Florence County?

    Over the next several months we'll be using our Feature of the Month to highlight all 46 counties in South Carolina. We'll cover 5 or 6 counties per month and provide valuable and interesting information about each one, including the answers to the above questions. For a head start on the fun, visit our County Delegations page. Then, check back each month between September 2010 and May 2011 to learn more about the richly diverse counties of South Carolina!
