Town of Edgefield

Old 96 District

Old 96 District

The town of Edgefield had a larger part in South Carolina history than any other city or town in the state. Known as the home of 10 governors, because 10 of the states Governor's were born here, the most famous being Strom Thurmond, former governor and longest running US Senator. Edgefield is also home to Old Edgefield Pottery, where a resident potter still makes alkaline glazed stoneware in the Old Edgefield Pottery tradition.
