SC Picture of the Month – Mountain RestMountain Rest is a small community located in Oconee County, just near the Georgia-South Carolina border. Part of the Sumter National Forest, it's a perfect place to escape busy city life and enjoy nature.
Oconee County was inhabited by the Cherokee Indians for hundreds of years until they relinquished their lands in treaties signed in 1777 and 1816. After the American Revolution, settlers from other areas of our state moved to Oconee and founded the town of Walhalla in 1850.
Calling All Photographers & Artists! Over 78,000 different people view our gallery every month. Submitting a picture is a great way to bring attention to you or your town. Please send us your pictures and help us celebrate South Carolina's history, culture, and beauty.
