Being one of the thirteen colonies that first formed the United States, South Carolina is teeming with history … and small towns that have played crucial roles in the history of our state. Now, the term “small town” is often used for towns that don’t technically fit the definition of a small town set by the U.S. Census Bureau of an incorporated area with 5,000 or fewer residents. Most of this list of small towns that define South Carolina falls within those parameters.
