Forest Acres, South Carolina


South Carolina Richland County Forest Acres


Forest Acres is located in Richland County on the eastern border of the City of Columbia. Here is a map of the Columbia area.

As South Carolina's capital city grew in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries, Forest Acres was a rural community in close in proximity to Columbia, but proudly removed from the "big city" hustle and bustle. But in the early 1930s, residents found themselves wishing for a particular city amenity – a sure water supply. As more homes got indoor plumbing, the privately owned water tanks and wells that had previously provided adequate water grew increasingly unreliable.

One of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal Programs; the Public Works Administration (WPA), offered grants for municipal water lines to incorporated areas. Rather than to become a part of the City of Columbia, residents selected the name Forest Acres and incorporated as a town in 1935. By 1939 water lines were in place.
