South Carolina is located in the southeastern United States; bordering the Atlantic Ocean. In colonial days, the state was part of a vast region that Charles I, king of England, granted to Sir Robert Heath in 1629. The region was named Carolana, a word derived from the Latin form of Charles, in reference to the monarch. His son, Charles II, changed the spelling of the region’s name to Carolina in 1663. During the 17th century the area now covered by the present state came to be called South Carolina and the area to the north became North Carolina. The two sections remained a single colony until the British divided it into two in 1729. Nevertheless, the two areas have continued to be referred to as the Carolinas. On May 23, 1788, South Carolina became the eighth state to ratify the Constitution of the United States.

South Carolina remained primarily an agricultural state until the early decades of the 20th century, when manufacturing, particularly the textile industry, developed as the leading economic activity. Nevertheless, agriculture continued to rank as an important activity. The state’s farm output, especially its production of cotton, still provides raw materials for many of its manufacturing activities. The production of textiles is the principal industrial activity, and South Carolina ranks third, behind only North Carolina and Georgia, among the states in the value of annual textile production. However, manufacturing has become more diversified since 1960. The modern shift in emphasis from agriculture to industry has been paralleled by a shift in population from rural to urban areas. Columbia is South Carolina’s capital and largest.

The state’s most popular, although unofficial, nickname is the Palmetto State. The palmetto, which grows abundantly in coastal areas, is the state tree and appears on the state seal and the state flag.

South Carolina ranks 40th in size among the states, with an area of 31,189 square miles, including 1,006 square miles of inland water and 72 square miles of coastal waters over which it has jurisdiction. The maximum distance, from east to west, is 273 miles and its maximum extent north to south is 219 miles. The state’s mean elevation is about 350 feet.

South Carolina’s coastline extends for an overall distance of 187 miles. However, if all bays, inlets, and islands are considered, the coastline measures 2,876 miles. The coastline in the northeast, along the Grand Strand, has few indentations or offshore islands. South of Winyah Bay, it is indented by numerous bays and fringed by the Sea Islands.

South Carolina’s climate is characterized by hot summers and mild winters. Precipitation is abundant and fairly evenly distributed throughout the year. The subtropical climate found in most of the state arises from the combination of the state’s relatively low latitude, its generally low elevation, the proximity of the warm Gulf Stream in the Atlantic, and the Appalachian Mountains, which in winter help to screen out cold air from the interior of the continent.

Average January temperatures range from less than 40° in the extreme northwestern part of the state to more than 50° in the southern coastal areas. The average temperature range in centrally located Columbia is 32° to 55° in January. Brief spells of cold weather, with temperatures of 20° or lower, occur each winter. July temperatures average about 80° in most of the state, with temperatures in the lower 70°s in the mountains. Except in the mountains, summer daytime highs throughout South Carolina often enter the lower 90°s. The temperature in July in Columbia ranges from 70° to 92°.
