Small towns are the backbone of South Carolina, even when those tiny places aren’t so tiny anymore. Such is the case with the once very small town of Newberry, which had a population of only 500 residents way back in 1850. But even still, that was nearly 100 years after the settlement was founded in the 1750s. As far as age goes, in keeping up with the three oldest cities in South Carolina (Charleston, founded 1670, Beaufort, 1711, and Georgetown, 1729), Newberry is among the oldest in the state.
