Guess who!!!

Born and raised in North Augusta, this Recreation Supervisor took swim lessons at the same park she programs at today! She graduated from Winthrop University with the intentions of teaching but, found her home at the Aiken County Recreation Center. She loves her campers and seniors just as much ♥️. #GuessWho

This historical site in Aiken County was developed in 1959 by the Board of Directors of Gregg-Graniteville Foundation, Inc. This was a center to accommodate the African-American employees of Graniteville Company and their families along with the residents of Warrenville, Graniteville and Vaucluse. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and the citizens could escape the heat in a filtered swimming pool or building. Today this site has an added walking track, basketball courts, and playground. Where am I in Aiken County?
