South Boundary – Aiken, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Aiken County Photos  |  South Boundary

The South Boundary avenue of oaks in Aiken makes a lovely scene in every season. Aiken was founded in the 1830s as a railroad town. It became a popular place for Charleston‘s wealthiest citizens to escape the sweltering Lowcountry summers and the threat of malaria.

After the Civil War, Aiken became a favored destination for wealthy Northerners who enjoyed the respite from harsh winters. During this period, known as the Winter Colony Era, seasonal visitors established horse farms and embarked on the equestrian traditions Aiken is known for today.

Lovely parks, tree-lined boulevards (such as South Boundary), grand churches, and gracious homes also became enduring legacies of the the Winter Colony Era.

I grew up in Aiken also and one of my best friends was the daughter of Mayor Weeks. I just saw this photo on pinterest and recognized the street immediately – so wonderful to see.

I grew up living on South Boundary on the corner of South Boundary and Williamsburg Street. Across the street from Mayor Odell Weeks, who was Mayor for over forty years.

This is absolutely stunning — just beautiful. I’m not familiar with SC because we are here on a military assignment. I love seeing things like this so I can find places to visit.
