Pickens County




Doing research in the GoldenCorner (Abbeville-Anderson-Oconee-Pickens) counties of South Carolina  might be time consuming for you, because of how these counties were formed.  Based on your time-period, you might need to research all (3) counties.  As a result, you'll find that many of the webpage links on the left side of this page will represent all (3) counties.


Oconee County takes its name from an Indian word. It was formed in 1868 from Pickens District, and the county seat is Walhalla. This area in the northwest corner of the state on the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains was home to the Cherokees, but the Indians gave up their lands in treaties signed in 1777 and 1816. After the American Revolution, settlers from other parts of the state began moving in, including the Germans from Charleston who founded the town of Walhalla in 1850. In 1856 work began on a tunnel for the Blue Ridge Railroad that would have linked Charleston with Knoxville, Tennessee, but the Civil War ended that project; the unfinished Stumphouse Tunnel can still be seen today. Several Revolutionary War heroes moved to present day Oconee County after the war, including Andrew Pickens (1739-1817), Robert Anderson (1741-1813), and Benjamin Cleveland (1738-1806).  (Submitted by: SC State Library / Mary Morgan, 31-Mar-2008)

The SC GoldenCorner GenWeb County Homesteads (Abbeville-Anderson-Oconee-Pickens) are due to the volunteer efforts of Paul Kankula (NN8NN) and Gary Flynn (KE8FD).  They have spent thousands of dollars and close to 20-years of spare time in order to bring you these SC GoldenCorner county homesteads.  Our only reward is knowing that all our hard-work will be permanently preserved and enjoyed by endless generations to come.
