Fairfield County is steeped in history and populated by people proud of their heritage.
Home to the longest running clock in America, colonial buildings, pines, ponds and pastures, Fairfield has seen growth and change over centuries. Something that has not changed, however, is what the town is made of - granite.
South Carolina has historically been one of the nation’s top producers of granite and that is due in large part to Fairfield County. Granite deposits in Fairfield County led to the early development of quarrying.
