Native Americans, Swiss settlers and African Americans graced the landscape before wealthy aristocrats’ transformed one small town into an affluent Winter Colony. Since the evolution of Aiken, folks have delighted in thoroughbred racing, fox hunting and polo. Marvel at the size of the magnolias, the architecture of antebellum homes and be captivated by many historic churches; all still here thanks to one of the last confederate victories, the Battle of Aiken. Natural resources are a priority in Aiken County. With streams and rivers flowing freely, there’s always a comfortable trail ready to be taken. The Horse Creek Water Trail is a fantastic way to enjoy the wooded beauty of Aiken County. Equestrian trail lovers will reminisce over Hitchcock Woods and the Langley Pond Loop Trail. Hikers can trek over seven Heritage Preserves while cyclist catch a breeze along the Savannah River. The world’s largest pond, Langley Pond plays host to several regattas, triathlons and wake board competitions annually.
