Elgin, South Carolina
South Carolina Kershaw County Elgin

Elgin is the third name for this community located in Kershaw County 12 miles east of Camden and close to the Richland County line. As early as 1832, Mr. Jeffers operated the post office out of his home, so the town was known as Jeffers. In the 1840s, the Seaboard Railroad came through the community and soon the town's name changed to Blaney to honor an executive of the railroad company. Finally, the town became Elgin in the 1960s when the Elgin Watch Company opened a plant and for a time, employed over 240 people in the area.
