St. George – St. George, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Dorchester County Photos  |  St. George

St. George has been the county seat of Dorchester County since the county was formed from Colleton County in 1897. Though more rural than the county’s largest town of Summerville, St. George is home to the county courthouse. Therefore, residents from all over must make the trek to the upper part of the county for most official business.

Interestingly, the people of St. George and its surrounding communities consume more grits per capita than folks in any other place in the world, according to research conducted by the Quaker Grits Company.

To celebrate this southern delicacy’s dominance in the kitchens of St. George, the town hosts the annual World Grits Festival each spring, sponsored by Quaker Grits. Activities include a 5k race, sampling of local grits recipes, and the Rolling in the Grits contest. The event attracts more than 30,000 people each year to celebrate and partake in the popular breakfast dish.

St. George – Add Info and More Photos

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 St. George, 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!
