South Carolina: Saluda County

Saluda County (pop. 19,875) is northeast of Edgefield County. It’s the only Saluda County in the U.S.

It was named for the 200-mile Saluda River, which was named for an Indian tribe that lived along its banks. It is a tributary of the Congaree River – which joins the Santee River and flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
