HISTORY

Colleton County was originally a land grant bestowed to Sir John Colleton by King Charles II in 1663. With colonization, large plantations developed which cultivated rice and indigo crops. The City of Walterboro was established as the county seat in 1817. The Colleton County Courthouse was built in 1820. Additional wings were added in 1939. Court is still held in the building which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The natural resources here are very much the keystone for recreation. With lush forests, brimming marshes, abundant wildlife, and undeveloped coastline many natives and visitors alike find enjoyment in hunting, fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, and shrimping.
