Lancaster County Overview

Created in 1785, Lancaster County, South Carolina had a population of 23,979 as of the 2010 census. Largely an urban area, the county seat is Lancaster, and it is also the largest community. Originally inhabited by Native Americans, any of the early settlers migrated to South Carolina from Lancaster, Lancashire. They had named their county for the House of Lancaster, which had opposed the House of York in the struggles of 1455-85, known as the War of the Roses. The House of Lancaster chose the red rose as their emblem while their neighbor, York County, boasts the white rose. The total area of the county is 549 square miles of land, plus an additional six square miles of water. Adjacent counties are: Mecklenburg (in North Carolina) to the north, Chester and York to the west, Fairfield to the southwest, Kershaw to the south, Chesterfield to the east, and Union (in North Carolina) to the northeast. Jim Hodges, former Governor of South Carolina, Andrew Jackson, seventh President of the United States, Nina Mae McKinney, actress and Broadway star, Todd Ray, aka ‘T-Ray’, Grammy Award-winning record producer, Julie Roberts, country music singer, and Aaron Robinson, Major League Baseball player (New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox, Boston Red Sox) were all from Lancaster County. Four zip codes are in use by the county, the largest of which is 29720.
