Aiken is located near the mid-point of South Carolina's long border with Georgia, about 15 miles east of Augusta. US 1 and US 78 pass through the heart of the city, and Interstate 20 skirts its northern border. Aiken is the seat of Aiken County.

In the late 1800s, Aiken gained popularity as a winter spot for the wealthy wanting to escape the harsh northeastern winters. Beautiful homes including Chinaberry, Joye Cottage, and Rye Patch established Aiken's Winter Colony.

Soon the new arrivals to Aiken discovered the landscape and climate were also ideal for horses. Equestrian facilities such as the Aiken Training Track were developed throughout the area and are still active today, making Aiken the center of South Carolina's "Thoroughbred Country."
