Edgefield County (established 1785) has one of the oldest and most complete collections of historical county records in South Carolina. One of the reasons for this is that the county has never suffered a courthouse fire and General Sherman did not pass through this area during the War Between the States. The county has an Archives Department that is dedicated solely to the housing and protection of these records. The purpose of the Edgefield County Archives is to collect, preserve, and make available the permanently valuable official records of the county in accordance with the County Council Resolution of 00-01-243 of June 13th 2001. The facility includes a research room and a state-of-the-art 1,668 square ft. records vault that is fire proof and climate-controlled.
