It has long been thought that the Clovis Culture first inhabited South Carolina about 13,000 years ago. However, some Archaeologists excavated the remains at the Topper Site argue that they found indications that there are signs of human settlement in the area even up to tens of thousands of years before the Clovis culture. Regardless of how long the Homo sapiens have been here when the Europeans firsts arrived here, the area was occupied by about 30 different contemporary Native American tribes which included such tribes as the Muskhogean-speaking Yamasee, Siouan-speaking Catawba, and Iroquoian-speaking Cherokee.
The earliest known Europeans to arrive here was Francisco Gordillo, who came from Spain. In the 16th century, France and Spain both attempted to take control of the area as a colony but were overcome by the hostile locals. The land eventually came under the rule of Britain in the 17th century. King Charles, the second granted the land to a man named Robert Heath in 1629, who called it Carolana, meaning 'Land of Charles.' On account of irreconcilable political differences, Carolina split into two as two royal colonies in 1729 with the northern half being called North Carolina and the southern one being South Carolina.
The state attained two significant firsts in America’s early history. The first one transpired at the beginning of the Revolutionary War when on March 26, 1776, the colony adopted its Constitution making it the very first republic in America. Likewise, on February 5, 1778, with a population of about 250,000, South Carolina became the first state to ratify the Articles of Confederation, and also the eighth to ratify the American Constitution on May 23, 1788, making it one of the original 13 colonies of the United States. The state now has a total area of 32,020 square miles, making it the 44th largest state in size in the USA. Currently, with its close to 5 million South Carolinians calling it home, it now ranks as the 23rd most populous US state. It is nicknamed The Palmetto State, a name which it has held since the 19th century. This is attributed to the Palmetto palm tree which is associated with the state. It is also known as the Iodine State, the Rice State, the Swamp State and Seaboard State.
The state is located to the southeast of the USA and borders the two states of North Carolina and Georgia and the Atlantic Ocean. With its many salt marshes, bays and natural ports, and beautiful coastline, it attracts many tourists. The highest point in the state is at the top of the Sassafras Mountains which is at an elevation of 3,500 feet. The Sassafras Mountains are located in the Blue Ridge Region, which is the smallest geographical area here. The state experiences humid subtropical climate except areas in the Upstate region. During summer, this state is usually humid and hot while the winter’s temperatures vary from region to region.
This state is subdivided into 46 counties, and its largest city, Columbia, which also acts its capital city, has a population of about 130,000. Columbia also serves as the county seat of Richland County. The city provided the site for the South Carolina Secession Convention which led to it being the first state in United States’ history to leave the union on December 20, 1860. This state was however readmitted back on June 25, 1868, after the American Civil War ended. The other main towns in S.C. are Charleston, North Charleston, Mount Pleasant and Rock Hill.
There over 60 colleges and universities that operate here. The eldest of all is the College of Charleston, which was started in 1770 and received its charter 15 years later. This was also the first Municipal College to be formed in the United States. Other institutions of higher learning include; the USC in Columbia which is the largest one in the state, the Citadel, which is a military college situated in Charleston, Lander University, Clemson University, and Winthrop University. The state has many private universities, some of the most significant being Furman College, Wofford College, MUSC, and Claflin University.
Though no professional teams play their home games her, the NFL Carolina Panthers, the NHL Carolina Hurricanes and the NBA Charlotte Hornets all represent both the North and South Carolinas at the same time. The Panthers placed their training facility here to show their solidarity. Several minor league baseball teams here are affiliated with the MLB like the Charleston RiverDogs with the New York Yankees, the Columbia Fireflies with the New York Mets, the Greenville Drive with the Boston Red Sox, and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans with the Chicago Cubs. Other notable sports teams here are the collegiate teams from the NCAA Division I like the Clemson Tigers, the USC Gamecocks, the Furman’s Paladins, the Citadel Bulldogs football teams, the Presbyterian Blue Hose, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, the Charleston Southern Buccaneers, the SCSU Bulldogs, and the Wofford Terriers. The biggest local college sports event each year is typically the rival football match between Clemson University’s Tiger against the SC Gamecocks.
One of the country’s earliest NASCAR race tracks, the Darlington Raceway, is located here, in Darlington County. The 1.37-mile race track hosts the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR’s Labor Day Weekend and the Southern 500. The Southern 500 is especially respected by racers and fans alike, and has been referred to as 'NASCAR’s greatest annual challenge’. The Carolina Cup, a horse race event, is also a major cultural event here. The event is held towards the end of March every year and has been running for so long that most people identify it as a tradition of the locals. For golfers, South Carolinians can attend the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island.
The state also boasts a rich culture full of art. Many art museums are scattered in the state. Some of the most significant are the Gibbes Museum of Art, SC State Museum, Columbia Museum of Art and the Greenville County Museum of Art. The Koger Center for the Arts, the Newberry Opera House, and the Peace Center are performance arts centers where local and international artists hold performances. The state also hosts some significant annual cultural events. One of the greatest events is the Hilton Head International Piano Competition, which is held every year at the start of March. This event involves young pianists aged between 13 and 30 and attracts talent from across the world. Another popular festival is the Spoleto Festival, which is an annual performing arts festival in Charleston.
There is a thriving economy here with several major industries being the agriculture and manufacturing sectors. Hay, soybeans, rice, dairy products, poultry, swine, cattle, and tobacco are some of the most important agricultural products of the state. S.C. is also known for its industrial products which include; chemical products, textile, paper products, machinery, automotive and automobile products. Tourism is also a significant source of income for the state. One of the state’s large cities, Charleston, has even been named the top tourist destination in the USA by Conde Nast readers for many years in a row. It is so popular with tourists that Charleston was even named the 2nd best tourist destination in the world after barely being beat out by a fraction of a point by Florence, Italy. Many visitors are also attracted to the other parts of the state with all the beautiful beaches, exciting cultural events, and fantastic architecture.
The only Fortune 500 Company with its headquarters in this state is Domtar, the second largest integrated producer of uncoated freesheet paper in the world. Other top private employers here are Milliken & Company, The InterTech Group Inc & Affiliates, J.M. Smith Corporation, United Sporting Companies, Southeastern Freight Lines, Hilex Poly Company, Carolina Eastern, Mount Vernon Mills, Dearybury Oil & Gas, and Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak, & Stevens, P.C.
When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. This state primarily follows the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) methodology when surveying the properties. Since this state used to be part of the original 13 U.S. Colonies, it primarily follows the old English real estate surveying method of using Metes and Bounds to legally describe the property.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this state is primarily a lien theory state. This just means that the raw title of the property will remain as collateral until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender must go to court and start a judicial foreclosure which typically takes about 150 days to complete so long as it remains uncontested. During this process, the mortgage company’s attorney will also typically file a lis pendens against the property so that the public is made aware of the pending foreclosure. Once the judge rules in favor of the mortgage company, then the court will issue a final judgment of foreclosure and the property will either revert back to the bank or will be awarded to the highest bidder at the foreclosure auction. The laws that pertain to the foreclosure process here are mostly found in South Carolina Code of Laws Title 29, Chapter 3, Article 7
However, if you are a landlord that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the S.C. statutes of Title 27, Chapter 40 instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the S.C. Real Estate Commission, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the South Carolina Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, complete at least 60 hours of approved SC real estate courses, successfully pass the written state exam, pass certain criminal background checks, be sponsored by a licensed S.C. real estate broker, and pay the various required licensing fees.
The state is among the best places to live in. The beautiful environment, friendly locals, the beach and the exciting cultural events that run throughout the year are only a few reasons why many residents call the state home.
