Town of Irmo

Irmo was incorporated in 1890 and has flourished along the tracks of Columbia, Newberry and Laurens railroads. The name of Irmo was derived from the surnames of two railroad officials, C.J. Iredell and H.C. Moseley. Divided by Richland County on the northwest and Lexington County on the southeast Irmo is located off the shore of Lake Murray and only ten miles from Columbia, the state capital. Irmo has grown from a sleepy little town into an area bustling with excellent shops, restaurants and specialty stores. The last weekend in September is home to the famed Okra Strut, the largest known celebration of the slimy green pod.

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!
