Committee tasked with telling County's Revolutionary history

To prepare for the celebration of the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution in 2026, the S.C. government established the SC250 Commission. It also encouraged counties to form their own commissions to help celebrate and better explain our history – and Georgetown County jumped at the opportunity. 

“We plan to use this event to not only celebrate but also educate about Georgetown County’s rich history,” said Julie Warren, secretary for Georgetown County’s 250 Committee. “We want to show the points of view that may be overlooked.” 

Many people know about Georgetown because of “the Swamp Fox” Francis Marion or the Historic Waterfront, which played an important role in the state’s economic development since the early 1700s. The 250 -committee’s goal is to tell about everyone who contributed to make Georgetown County what it is today. 

This celebratory event is expected to bring visitors to Georgetown County for many years to come. Although the 250th anniversary isn’t until 2026, now is the time to get involved in the planning! The next meeting of the 250 Committee is open to anyone interested in participating and will be at 6 p.m. June 22 at the Georgetown County Museum on Broad Street.
