Although growth and development are underway with many exciting projects, Blythewood’s rich southern traditions, attention to education, and celebration of family are at the heart of the town.
Its history takes you back to a time when the town was called Doko, and the Doko Depot supplied water for the steam engines. Agriculture has always been an integral part of this town and the local farmer’s market continues a long-standing tradition of buying locally from the harvest of its land. Blythewood has a strong equestrian tradition, is home to the USC Equestrian Center, and served as the training ground for the US Olympic equestrian teams. Baseball is taken seriously here, as is golfing, parks, and the yearly rodeo and festivals. With a location just outside of Columbia, SC, and less than an hour from Charlotte, Blythewood has always been attractive to families searching for the virtues of small-town living. Communities include:
- Ashley Oaks
- Cobblestone Park
- Wren Creek
