City of Pickens

Nestled in the northwest corner of the state in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, lies the county seat and town of Pickens, named in honor of Revolutionary War hero Andrew Pickens. The town is convenient to the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway (SC 11) where numerous waterfalls and state parks, including Table Rock and Keowee-Toxaway, attract visitors to the Upstate.

Pickens includes a county museum located in the 1902 county jail and nearby, the 1826 Hagood Grist Mill. The Azalea Festival is celebrated each spring, featuring a classic car cruise and an arts/crafts show.
