Olde English District Tourism Commission

More Revolutionary War battles were fought in South Carolina than any other colony and many of them were in the seven counties (Chester, Chesterfield, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Union and York) known as the Olde English District. The battles and the similarity to English town names give the north central area of the state its name. A National Park (Kings Mountain National Mililtary Park), living history sites, monuments and markers invite you to explore your past and the beginnings of our country.

Located between Charlotte, NC, and Columbia, SC, I-77 bisects the area, but it is also accessible from I-85. We encourage you to get off those interstates and travel the back roads to discover authentic South Carolina. You'll find great farms to pick or buy juicy peaches and strawberries, historical B & B's, plantation homes and museums with wonderful legends and truths about times gone by, and outdoor adventures for all ages.

Disconnect from technology and reconnect with your family in the Olde English District. Filled with woodlands and waterways, state and local parks you can swim, fish, canoe, kayak, camp, hike, bike, go ATVing, play disc golf or traditional golf and breathe in the sweet air.

You can learn about the African-American heritage and experience interpreters who make history come alive. Trace your roots, go antiquing, interact with artists at their studios and see Revolutionary and Civil War sites and reenactments.

Stop by our Visitors Center and Market at Exit 65 of I-77, open daily from 9-5. You'll get detailed, customized information on the area from locals who are proud to share. Take home a piece of South Carolina as we feature artists and food entrepreneurs who offer a variety of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted products. From food items like BBQ sauce to pottery with the crescent and Palmetto tree, we'll make sure you experience the rich diversity of the Olde English District.
