Dating all the way back to 1853, Pickens County was initially a railroad town where marble was mined and sent all over the country. Fast forward to today, and you find a county still deeply connected to its rich history but also ready to face the future with open arms. Pickens has faced more development than ever in the past few years, now offering more commercial options and many more houses. However, what’s best about Pickens is its continued connection to the nature around it, including beautiful mountains, gorgeous stretches of rural ground, and the peaceful area. If you have a chance, be sure to visit and enjoy the tranquility.
