Town of Lexington

Lexington was formed in 1785 and named for the first battle of the Revolutionary War (Lexington, Mass.). It was originally called Saxe Gotha, because many of the original settlers were Swiss. It was an original frontier outpost established as the front line of defense for Charleston against the Cherokees, along with several other towns on Carolina's rivers.

For more information about the region, make sure to check out the Capital City and Lake Murray Country Visitor Center at www.LakeMurrayCountry.com! Encompassing Lexington, Newberry, Richland, and Saluda counties, as well as South Carolina's capital, Columbia, this center can help you with every aspect of planning your visit. Give them a call at 1-866-SC-JEWEL (locally 803-781-5940), or feel free to drop by 2184 North Lake Drive, Columbia SC 29212 if you're in the area!
