Aiken Town Clock – Aiken, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Aiken County Photos  |  Aiken Town Clock

Located at the corner of Laurens Street and Richland Avenue, Aiken‘s town clock was installed in 2007. Aiken got its start as a railroad town. In the 1830s, the South Carolina Canal and Railroad Company established a route between Charleston and Hamburg to transport tobacco and cotton. William Aiken was president of the railroad and the fledgling town of Aiken took his name. Soon after, streets were arranged by an engineer, and the town was chartered in 1835.
