Farms and land in Williamsburg County are a paradise for investors. With a cost of living more than 16% lower than the national average, a unionization rate of just 2.7%, access to transportation and a skilled workforce, Williamsburg land purchases are a savvy investment. Agriculture historically was its economic engine, but the last few decades have attracted a growing manufacturing segment that is now the area’s largest private employment sector. Hydraulic, Pepsi, Tupperware and Palmetto Synthetics are just a few of the heavy-hitters who have staked their claims on Williamsburg County land. The 937-square-mile county has a population of 30,000. Farm land accounts for 208,601 acres of use. Cropland and pastures occupy 54% of farm land and woodlands 42%, which makes it a timber opportunity. Located about halfway between Interstate 95 and the coast, there is easy access to ports, railways and airports. Myrtle Beach International Airport is just a 90-minute drive. But life isn’t just about business. For those looking for outdoor adventure, look no further than the Black River. Wild undeveloped swamp land along its shores provides habitat for many species for hunting and draws fishermen from all over seeking to catch bream, red-breasted sunfish, large mouth bass and catfish. History enthusiasts will enjoy the Kingstree Historic District that includes 19th-century commercial architecture. Williamsburg County School District provides K-12 public education, and Williamsburg Technical College is the gateway to higher learning.
