History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Both Aiken County and its county seat of Aiken are named after William Aiken (1779–1831) who was the first president of the South Carolina Railroad Company. In 1871, Aiken County was formed from pieces of Barnwell, Edgefield, Lexington, and Orangeburg counties.

After the Civil War, the county became a hot spot as a winter home for affluent Northerners. The county still remains popular with horse trainers and riders.

In the 1950s, Aiken County along with the nearby counties of Allendale and Barnwell was chosen as the location for storage of nuclear materials and various fissile materials, now known as the Savannah River Site. Developed during Cold War tension the facility is now scheduled for various parts of the site to be decommissioned.[1]
