McCormick County

Formed in 1916, McCormick County was settled in the mid-eighteenth century by Scotch-Irish, French Huguenot, and German farmers. The County’s natural beauty, abundant resources, and location are what attracted early settlers and what continue to make McCormick County a unique place today.

McCormick is located within the Sumter National Forest and nestled along South Carolina’s Freshwater Coast. The county is also characterized by its man-made lake, Thurmond Dam, named after Strom Thurmond, the longest-serving member of Congress to serve exclusively in the Senate. At full pool elevation, the lake comprises nearly 71,100 acres of water. It is a popular recreation area, attracting people from South Carolina and Georgia. Savannah Lakes Villages, an exclusive community with two championship golf courses located along the lake, offers a variety of recreational activities.

Besides outdoor activities, McCormick County also provides its residents with cultural events. The McCormick Arts Council at the Keturah (MACK) encourages participation in various cultural opportunities: exhibits, educational programs, performances and events are held throughout the year. The MACK is a vital historic and cultural establishment of community identity and tourism.
