Long Description:
Facing the park at Park Avenue at the foot of the stairs to the majestic Aiken County Judicial Center is the historical marker about Aiken County.

It reads
"Aiken County, created in 1871 from parts of Barnwell, Edgefield, Lexington, and Orangeburg counties, was named for William Aiken, first president of the South Carolina Canal and Railroad Company. Older industries in the county today are textiles, and the mining and processing of kaolin. In 1952, the Atomic Energy Commission's Savannah River Plant began operations.
Erected by Aiken County Historical Commission, 1979"
