Message from the Mayor
Hello, I'm Mayor Roy Smith, Jr. Welcome to the Town of McCormick, South Carolina's Website. We have put together a wealth of information about McCormick that we hope will be useful to our citizens and visitors.
We’re excited about the opportunity to visit with you through the INTERNET. The Town of McCormick is a great Town and our goal is to provide our citizens with the best service a Town can offer and our visitors with the best vacation area.
Those of you who would like to visit our green community, buffered by 63,000 acres of natural forest, three state parks, and the 70,000 acres Lake Thurmond, we invite you to do so.
McCormick is a unique place that offers the quiet traditional quality of life with nature's amenities at your side. Whether your idea of outdoor adventure is an open window drive, touring historical sites, or a family trip, kayaking down the scenic Little River, central to these activities is Baker Creek State Park, which offers 100 camp sites, all on the Little River Blueway. If you like sports, you can play golf and stay at Hickory Knob Lodge and Restaurant.
At the heart of these green amenities is the Town of McCormick with quaint shops, restaurants and historic sites. The McCormick Arts Council at the Keturah (MACK) is also located in Town.
The MACK is home to dozens of artists that utilize the facility to refine their talent and conduct classes on paintings, pottery making and photography. There are also classes for young emerging artists in the summer. One of the best times to explore the Town of McCormick this year is during our two major festivals, they are:
1) The Spring Bonanza - Arts and Heritage Festival - April 21, 2012
2) Gold Rush Festival - Explore the Dorn Mill - Pan for Gold from our Goldmine - September 15, 2012
Please, join us and nature. For more details call our Visitor's Center at (864)-852-2835.
