Lexington is a descendent of the township of Saxe Gotha, which was established in South Carolina in 1735. The first settlers were of German and Swiss descent, and helped the local economy with the cultivation of corn, wheat, tobacco, hemp, flax, beeswax and livestock. Many battles were fought in the area during the American Revolution, including the Battle of Tarrar Springs. Lexington County was established in 1785, and the town’s name was changed to commemorate the Massachusetts Revolutionary War battle. The town of Lexington was officially incorporated in 1861.
Today, Lexington continues to be one of the fastest growing communities in the United States. As the political center of Lexington County, the town offers many unique opportunities for people from all walks of life.
