The History of Aiken
Named after the president of the South Carolina Railroad (Wiliam Aiken), Aiken was founded in 1835. Thirty six years later, Aiken County was formed by taking parts of the surrounding counties and Aiken became the county seat.
Aiken developed around the area at the end of the rail line that ran from Charleston to the Hamburg. Aiken was a planned city with its roads and parkways designed by engineers Alfred Dexter & C.O. Pascalis.
In it's early days, it was a place of respite for the wealthy who sought to escape the more populated cities and northerners who sought a place of refuge from the winter weather. Regular visitors to Aiken included: The Astor's, The Vanderbilt's, The Whitney's, The Harriman's, and Senator James Eustis.
The greater Aiken area played an important role in the Cold War when construction of the "Savannah River Site" began in 1951. A massive construction project employing nearly 40,000 workers, the facility was designed to produce tritium and plutonium that would later be used for the U.S. nuclear arsenal to address the growing Russian nuclear threat.
