General Information & Pendleton District

 

Doing research in the GoldenCorner (Anderson-Oconee-Pickens) counties of South Carolina  might be time consuming for you, because of how these counties were formed.  Based on your time-period, you might need to research all (3) counties.  As a result, you'll find that many of the webpage links on the left side of this page will represent all (3) counties.

 

 - Prior to ~1783, no lawful White settlements were above present southern Anderson County border.

- In 1789 Pendleton County was formed as part of the 96 Judicial District from Indian Country.
- In 1795 Pendleton County was placed in the Washington Judicial District.
- In 1799, Pendleton County was named Pendleton District by the State legislature
and Washington Judicial District was discontinued.
- In 1826/27, Pendleton District was divided into the Anderson & Pickens Districts.
- In 1868 the state legislature decided to change all districts to counties. 

- Oconee County (est. 1868) represents part of old Pickens County & added Indian Land.
- Pickens County (est. 1825) represents part of old Pickens District.
- Anderson County (est. 1826) represents the old Anderson District.
- In 1986, Pickens County annexed Oconee County land that included Clemson
University and land extending SE to Anderson County.
