pickens COUNTY

 

Once Cherokee territory, the history of Pickens County has been evolving before the forming of our nation as we know it. You can trace this fascinating history beginning with prehistoric petroglyphs at the South Carolina Rock Art Center, explore towns that were once bustling stagecoach stops, visit one of the oldest operating grist mills in the state, appreciate the architecture of a church built in the 1700s, taste freshly picked produce from the Upcountry orchards, and plenty  more.
