Salley, South Carolina

South Carolina Aiken County Salley

In 1735, King George II of England issued three large land grants to Swiss German families. This settlement became known as John Town as the head of each family was named John. South Carolina legislator Dempsey Salley was successful in getting the railroad to come through town and its incorporation. On December 19, 1887, John Town officially became "Sally". It took decades to fix the error, but finally in 1935, the spelling was corrected to Salley as was intended.

Since 1966, Salley has hosted the annual Chitlin' Strut which attracts thousands for country music, chitlins, and barbeque.

Salley is located in western Aiken County, close to the Orangeburg County border. It is equidistant from the cities of Aiken, Orangeburg, and Columbia. Here are maps of the Aiken area, the Orangeburg area, and the Columbia area.
