The town of Edgefield was founded in 1785 and soon emerged as a trade center for surrounding farms. SCIWAY visited Edgefield in October 2008 and enjoyed the quaint, timeless quality of this small South Carolina town.

Edgefield is most proud of its native sons, deeming itself the Home of 10 Governors. Perhaps its most famous native was Senator Strom Thurmond who is celebrated with a life size bronze statue that faces the courthouse. The town is also home to the oldest newspaper in South Carolina, The Edgefield Advertiser.

Many areas of the town are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The town square itself has been called a shrine to the agelessness of political, religious, industrial, and cultural happenings within the community.
