Newberry County: At The Center of It All

 

Near the geographic center of the state, Newberry County is close to everything you could want. Stop and stay awhile.

 

In real estate, it’s “location, location, location.” The same can be said for Newberry County.

 

With our central Midlands location, we’re close to the beautiful South Carolina beaches, close to the Blue Ridge Mountains, contain much of Sumter National Forest, and is at the center of a cultural and economic renaissance that’s been recognized in The New York Times and Wall Street Journal. That’s why we like to say, “Meet me half-way in Newberry.”

 

Meet Me Halfway

Just off Interstate 26, midway between Columbia and Greenville airports, we’re only 93 miles to Charlotte and 187 to Atlanta, with I-20, I-77 and I-95 all nearby.

 

Founded in 1785, Newberry County is made up of nine cities, towns, and communities. Small town southern charm, a robust arts scene, thriving downtowns, and great schools are just some of the amenities to be found; and with a surprisingly low cost of living. We are the ideal location for both large industry and small business and have room for growth.
