About Us

Pickens is a unique place. It simply feels different here.  The land speaks to the people and the people respect the place. There is an energy here that is drawn from the land and the deep history it holds. It's an energy that has passed from the Native Americans who once roamed the landscape to fiercely patriotic colonial ancestors, and beyond. This energy planted a seed of independence and true grit that has shaped the county for generations. Pickens County is an artistic and contemplative place where the land is connected to the people like an invisible lifeline.
