James U. Jackson believed the bluff area along the Savannah River would be an ideal setting for a town. He developed plans for a 600-acre town in 1902, and North Augusta was born.

At that time, there was only one route across the river to the new town. Wanting to ease travel to the new town, Jackson obtained financing and built a new bridge to North Augusta. Today, the Thirteenth Street bridge still leads to the heart of North Augusta.

In the photo above, you can see beautiful Lookaway Hall where Georgia Avenue splits with Carolina Avenue. Georgia Avenue is also home to the North Augusta Municipal Center and Brick Pond Park. (Many thanks to Larry Gleason of Aiken for this helpful info!)

Downtown North Augusta remains vibrant all year long. The town gets into the holiday spirit each year, though in the above Christmas Eve photo, the streets are quiet as everyone eagerly awaits a visit from Santa.

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of North Augusta, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
