Beautiful Calhoun County [1] is located on the outskirts of South Carolina's capital city; the county seat is located in St. Matthews. A rural and pastoral region of the state, Calhoun County is a popular destination for some of the nation's leading industries, particularly locomotive and logistic companies who need convenient access to interstates. A short half hour drive to Columbia and an hour and half drive to historic Charleston, Calhoun County is an ideal place for those who enjoy a quiet and friendly community close to urban cities.

Calhoun County is about blue skies and mild weather and is home to a little over 15,000 residents. St. Matthews is the County Seat of Calhoun County and was established in 1908. We are only 35 minutes from the State Capitol (Columbia) and a little over an hour from the Port City of Charleston.
