Aiken County is the only county in the United States named “Aiken.” Formed in 1871 by combining portions of Edgefield, Lexington, Orangeburg and Barnwell counties, Aiken County was named for William Aiken, the first president of the South Carolina Railroad and Canal Company. Mr. Aiken reportedly never visited the County.

The 2000 Census counted 142,552 persons living in the County, an increase of about 22,000 from 1990. Aiken is the fourth largest South Carolina county by land area, and its size of 1,073 square miles is 28 square miles larger than the state of Rhode Island.

Aiken County is located midway between the mountains and the coast and is bordered by the Savannah River on the west, Edgefield and Saluda Counties on the north, Barnwell and Orangeburg Counties on the southeast and by Lexington County on the east. Aiken County covers 704,000 acres, of which 73,000 acres are part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site. The city of Aiken is the county seat.

Aiken is a major racehorse training area and is famous for its Triple Crown, which consists of the Aiken Trials, the Steeplechase, and the High Goal Polo Game.

Aiken County enjoys a mild climate with an average winter temperature of 48 degrees F. and an average summer temperature of 79 degrees F. The average daily maximum temperature is 90 degrees F.

Augusta Information

Augusta GA Information

Augusta is the oldest and second largest city in Georgia. Augusta has been rated as the second best place to live in Georgia, and 111th in the nation. (Places Rated Almanac).

Situated on the beautiful Savannah River, Augusta is approximately 150 miles east of Atlanta on Interstate 20 in east central Georgia at the South Carolina border. Augusta is centrally located just two and a half hours from the beach and the mountains.

With nearly half a million residents, Augusta has a variety of amenities including a vibrant arts community, minor league sports teams, numerous colleges and universities, the state’s medical college, the world’s best known golf course and many fine restaurants. And unlike other growing cities in the Southeast, the area has fewer of the traffic snarls and air pollution restrictions plaguing so many metropolitan areas.

Augusta is also home to the United States Army Signal Center Fort Gordon, the top two manufacturer’s of golf cars in the world, highly-regarded museums and numerous national companies. The city is recognized nationwide for its state-of-the-art medical facilities and growing business and manufacturing sectors.

In addition to the low cost of living and affordable housing, Augusta offers its residents a beautiful historic city with a diverse culture, active arts community and mild climate. These are only some of the reasons thousands of retired military families call Augusta home.

Once a year, during the first full week of April, the eyes of the world are focused on Augusta when the world’s greatest golfers gather at the Augusta National Golf Club for the Masters Tournament.

Augusta also has several professional sports teams, including the Augusta Riverhawks, a Southern Professional Hockey League Team, and the Augusta Green Jackets, a minor league (Single A) baseball team owned by Cal Ripken Jr. and affiliated with the San Francisco Giants.

Augusta was once the capital of Georgia and has a large number of historically significant homes and facilities. The Cotton Exchange, established in 1872, supplied local businessmen with cattle and grain quotations from Chicago, stock averages from New York and daily market prices for cotton. It has recently been restored as the home of a local bank. In addition, Augusta is home to Woodrow Wilson’s (28th president of the United States) childhood home; the Ezekiel Harris House; George Walton’s (signer of the Declaration of Independence) home and many more historical places of interest.

Augusta is home to what many consider the most beautiful golf course in the world. The Augusta National. This is the 13th hole.
The late godfather of soul, James Brown, called Augusta home and the city is the birthplace of celebrities Amy Grant, Laurence Fishburne, Jessye Norman, Terri Gibbs, Danny Glover, Joe Penney, boxer Ray Mercer, novelist Frank Yerby, professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and pro golfer Larry Mize. Former NFL star Emerson Boozer, jazz trombonist Wycliff Gordon, musician Josh Kelly, actress Butterfly McQueen (Prissy in Gone with the Wind), talk show host Barry Young and others were born here. Ty Cobb, a great baseball player of his time, also made his home in Augusta.

Augusta reflects the historic charm of the classic South with its tree-lined streets and majestic antebellum mansions. There are dozens of shops and restaurants, cultural and historic attractions in Augusta.

With an average temperature of 62.7 degrees, Augustans spend much of the year outside taking advantage of many parks and recreational facilities.

Water recreation is also prominent. Several state parks dot the area, including Elijah Clark and Mistletoe state parks. Thurmond Lake is one of the largest man-made lakes east of the Mississippi River, with a 1,200-mile shoreline that is longer than the entire U.S. eastern seaboard.

Augusta is the birthplace of the Southern Baptist denomination, and the location of Springfield Baptist Church, the oldest autonomous African-American Baptist church in the nation. Morehouse College was founded in the basement of the church. African American history is honored at the Lucy Craft Laney museum. Built in 1914, The Butt Memorial Bridge was placed in memory of Archibald Butt. It was the first memorial in the world to the RMS Titanic, and is the only such memorial in Georgia.

Clarks Hill/Lake Thurmond

Clarks Hill – Lake Thurmond Area Information

Clarks Hill Lake, also known by its more recent official name of J. Strom Thurmond Lake and Dam, is one of the southeast’s largest and most popular public recreation lakes. Built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers between 1946 and 1954 as part of a flood control, hydropower and navigation project, authorized purposes now include recreation, water quality, water supply, and fish and wildlife management.

Each year millions of people utilize the many public parks, marinas, and campgrounds conveniently located around the lake to pursue a variety of outdoor recreational experiences — making Clarks Hill/Lake Thurmond one of the 10 most visited Corps lakes in the nation.

Clarks Hill/Lake Thurmond is a man-made lake bordering Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Broad and Little Rivers. The lake is created by Thurmond Dam located on the Savannah River 22 miles above Augusta and 239.5 miles above the mouth of the Savannah River. The lake extends 39.4 miles up the Savannah River, 29 miles up the Little River and 6.5 miles up the Broad River in Georgia, and 17 miles up the Little River in South Carolina, at normal pool elevation, Thurmond Lake comprises nearly 71,100 acres of water with a shoreline of 1,200 miles.

Clarks Hill/Lake Thurmond is the first Corps of Engineers project built in the Savannah River Basin. Hartwell Lake and Dam, the second project built in the basin, was completed in 1963, and a third project, Richard B. Russell Lake and Dam, was completed in 1985. Together these three lakes form a chain of lakes 120 miles long. Congress authorized Clarks Hill in 1944 and construction began in 1946. The project was completed in 1954 at a cost of $79 million.

Originally the project was to be called “Clarks Hill Dam.” The “s” at the end of “Clarks” was omitted due to a clerical error in the original Congressional Authorization, and the project became “Clark Hill Dam.” The name was later corrected to become “Clarks Hill Dam.”

The 1966 Flood Control Act authorized the building of Trotters Shoals Lake and Dam on the Savannah River between Clarks Hill Lake and Hartwell Lake. This lake was later renamed to commemorate a late senator from Georgia, Richard B. Russell who was very important in supporting the building of dams on the river. This created a movement to rename Clarks Hill Lake after J. Strom Thurmond, the longest serving senator in U.S. history who was from Edgefield on the South Carolina side of the lake. This movement gained support due to the senator’s great popularity in the area, and in 1988 the project was congressionally renamed “J. Strom Thurmond Dam and Lake.” It is still referred to commonly as Clarks Hill.

Columbia County Information

Columbia County Area Information & Lifestyle

Columbia County, the 12th county formed in Georgia, was created in 1790. Originally part of Richmond County, Columbia County was named for Christopher Columbus.

Rapid growth has transformed this county from a rural neighbor of Augusta to the major suburban county in the second largest metropolitan area in Georgia. There are many reasons for this rapid growth (475 percent since 1970) – a growing and diversified job market, a premier school system, affordable land, open spaces lending an air of the countryside, and a stable, conservative county government. Columbia County is predominantly residential and includes a highly-skilled workforce. Household income levels rank third among Georgia’s 159 counties. The predominantly rural county had 22,327 residents in 1970 and the current estimated population is 107,000.

The two largest “cities” in Columbia County, Martinez and Evans, are not actually cities … they are census-designated places (CDP). Martinez is located on the eastern edge of the county adjacent to Augusta and had an estimated population of 32,390 in 2005. Evans, with an estimated population of 20,681 in 2005, is the current center of the county’s explosive growth and is the defacto county seat, even though the traditional courthouse remains in Appling.

Appling, chartered in 1816, was one of 187 inactive municipalities which lost their charters in 1995 as a result of a 1993 Act of the General Assembly. There is some controversy over whether or not Appling ever was incorporated.

Incorporated cities in Columbia County are Harlem and Grovetown.

Harlem, located in the southern part of Columbia County, is the birthplace of Oliver Hardy, the rotund member of one of Hollywood’s greatest comedy team. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy remained partners and friends until Hardy’s death in 1957.

Grovetown, located near Fort Gordon, is growing rapidly with its population increasing from 6,089 in 2000 to an estimated 8,200 today.

With 1,200 miles of shoreline, Clarks Hill Lake is the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi and is partially located in Columbia County. The lake, which is also known as Thurmond Lake, was created in 1946 when the Army Corps of Engineers built the Clarks Hill Dam on the Savannah River.

The Augusta Canal Heritage Area, which is partially in Columbia County, has been designated a historical waterway by the U.S. Congress and designated as a Regionally Important Resource (RIR).

Columbia County’s high schools consistently rank among the top high schools in the state and the nation.

Columbia County Schools

Columbia County School District Information

The Columbia County School System has established a pattern for consistent excellence and achievement making it one of the premier school systems in Georgia. Columbia County students at the elementary and secondary school level consistently excel at a level greater than their peers at both the state and national level in the areas of academic achievement.

Expansion Magazine, a leading national publication for expansion and relocation, has honored Columbia County School System with a “Blue Ribbon” rating. This Blue Ribbon rating is determined by evaluating college-board scores, graduation rates, and the community’s financial commitment to education. Expansion Magazine has evaluated school districts around the country for the past 15 years.

School Organization

The Columbia County School System currently operates 17 elementary schools, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade; seven middle schools with grades six through eight, four high schools, grades nine through 12 and one alternative school, grades six through 12. Building new or renovating and upgrading existing facilities is a constant process which enables the Columbia County School System to maintain leading edge facilities and accommodate future growth while providing a world class education for all students.

Elementary Schools

The elementary program addresses the development of students in five areas – intellectual development, social and emotional development, development of social responsibility, physical development, and artistic development, in addition to the core subject of communication skills (language arts-reading, English, spelling, handwriting), mathematics, science, social studies, health, music and art. School times are 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Middle Schools

At the middle school level, each grade level is divided into teams or pods, of approximately 75 to 125 students working with a specific interdisciplinary team of teachers. The term “interdisciplinary” means that teachers work and plan together to present subjects in such a way that students begin to see and understand relationships among the disciplines of math, science, social studies, and communication skills. Teachers in each interdisciplinary team have the same planning period each day so they can meet frequently to discuss the progress of students and to plan the best education for those students.

In addition to the core subject areas, the middle school program addresses an exploratory program. This program provides brief (nine to 18 weeks) but meaningful exposure to subject areas that students will eventually have options to take in high school for much longer periods of time. Some of these options are: technology lab, business, family and consumer science, band, general music, chorus, and visual arts.

Two new middle schools are planned in the next five years to serve students in the Martinez/Evans area.

High Schools

The high school curriculum is composed of courses in communication skills (grammar, composition, and literature); fine arts (art, band, chorus, and drama); foreign language (French, German, Latin, and Spanish); Junior Reserved Officer’s Training Corps (JROTC); mathematics; physical education and health; science; social studies; and technology and career education.

Georgia offers two types of diplomas, Technology/Career Preparatory and College Preparatory. The requirements for the diplomas are similar with the Technology/Career Prep courses being taught as real-world, hands-on courses and the College Prep courses being taught in a more traditional manner.

Students, with parental approval, will select courses in which to enroll each year. The selections should be based on needs, abilities, graduation requirements and plans following high school. Graduation from Columbia County Schools will be based on meeting attendance guidelines; passing all required sections of the Georgia High School Graduation Exam; earning Carnegie units of credit as specified through state and local policy; completing a Senior Project; and at least completing one of the required programs of study.
