  Anderson County border.

          - In 1785 a Treaty was signed to remove the Cherokee Indians from South Carolina.

- In 1789 Pendleton County was formed as part of the 96 Judicial District from Indian

- 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 1816 another Treaty was signed to relinquish the adjacent Indian Territory land to 

  Oconee County.

- 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

- 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.


Pickens County was named for Revolutionary War hero Andrew Pickens (1739-1817). The county seat is the town of Pickens. This area in the northwestern corner of the state was Indian territory until 1777. It subsequently became part of Pendleton District (at one time called Washington District). In 1826 Pendleton was divided into two counties, Pickens and Anderson; the western portion of Pickens County was later split off to form Oconee County (1868). The earliest European settlers in this region were Indian traders. The British built Fort Prince George around 1753 as protection against the Indians, and the fort was the site of several battles in the Cherokee War of 1760-62. The Cherokee town of Old Seneca was later destroyed by American troops in 1776. John C. Calhoun (1782-1850), United States vice president, senator, and cabinet member, made his home at Fort Hill plantation in Pickens County. His son-in-law, Thomas Green Clemson (1807-1888), bequeathed the plantation to the state for use as an agricultural college, which led to the founding of Clemson University (Submitted by: SC State Library / Mary Morgan, 31-Mar-2008)

The SC GoldenCorner GenWeb County Homesteads (Abbeville-Anderson-Oconee-Pickens) are due to the volunteer efforts of Paul Kankula (NN8NN) and Gary Flynn (KE8FD).  We have spent thousands of dollars and over 15-years of spare time  in order to bring you these GoldenCorner county homesteads.  Our only reward is knowing that all our hard-work will be permanently preserved and enjoyed by endless generations to come.  See Will I Be Remembered When I'm Gone.  Enjoy.
