Welcome to Calhoun County!

Welcome to beautiful Calhoun County!

With its County Seat located in Saint Matthews, Calhoun is nestled between Richland, Lexington, and Orangeburg. A rural and pastoral region of the state, Calhoun is a popular destination for some of the Nation's leading industries - locomotive and logistic companies primarily, each looking to take advantage of convenient access to multiple interstates and other resources. Calhoun County is an ideal place for those who appreciate quiet and friendly communities as our residents enjoy a peaceful quality of life. The big city isn't far away, though, as Columbia and Charleston are easily within driving distance.

Thanks for visiting. We hope you'll find what you're looking for here!
