Broad River – Newberry County, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Newberry County Photos  |  Broad River

The Broad River begins in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, enters South Carolina in Cherokee County, and continues through the state until it merges with the Saluda River in Richland County to form the Congaree River. The Three Rivers Greenway in Columbia is the perfect spot to see these rivers come together.

In 1991 the General Assembly of South Carolina designated the section of the Broad River from the 99 Islands Dam in Cherokee County to the Pacolet River a State Scenic River. The designation will help ensure that the undeveloped portion of the river will remain pristine through conservation efforts and thus continue to support diverse plant and animal life.

Small correction, the Broad River enters SC in Cherokee County. York County is on the east bank 12 or so miles downstream.
