On behalf of the Jasper County Chamber of Commerce, its Board of Directors, staff
and approximately 300 member businesses, I wish to welcome you to Jasper County,
South Carolina. Nestled between the historic city of Savannah and the beautiful
barrier islands of the South Carolina Lowcountry, Jasper County offers you a unique
opportunity to experience a wide variety of leisure time pursuits.
for yourself as you traverse the highways and byways that wind their way through
six hundred sixty-two square miles of beautiful wetland habitats, wilderness forest,
river deltas, nature preserves and landscaped parks. Jasper County has long been
known as a "Sportsman's Paradise," with hunting, fishing, kayaking,
boating, hiking and other outdoor fun just waiting for the enthusiast to enjoy.
If a more structured activity is to your liking, walk the Blue Heron Nature
Trail in Ridgeland, the county seat, or stroll the rustic trails in the Sergeant
Jasper Park in Hardeeville, A visit to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge can
top off anyone's trip and give real insight to the sensitive ecosystem of the
County is more than nature-based tourism. It is business, big business. The development
of highly successful, upscale business and industrial parks throughout the county
has attracted worldwide attention. In the coming year, Jasper County expects to
formalize agreements that will entail over a billion dollars of investment in
the county over the next five years.|
This sleepy, little rural county
is maturing and taking its rightful place in the mainstream of 21st century commerce.
Owing to a commitment by its elected leadership to develop the necessary infrastructure
to attract non-polluting business and industry, Jasper County is reaping the rewards
of that strategy, with better paying jobs created weekly, resulting in an economy
that is surging as ever increasing payrolls are spread throughout the community.
It's an exciting time in Jasper County and we invite you to become a part
of it. We truly have something to offer everyone. For more information on the
many opportunities available in Jasper County, for work, play, shopping, worship
or recreation, please contact us.
to Jasper County!
