Chesterfield County Reviews

Chesterfield County is a small rural area where everyone knows everyone. When you drive b someone you automatically wave at the car going by. There are lots of watermelons and peaches in the summer and lots of soybean fields in the winter. There is the sound of chainsaws and the smell of wood burning from the pot belly stoves. I grew up here and there is nothing like GOOD OLE COUNTRY LIVING!

I have enjoyed the time I have lived in Chesterfield for the most part. The people are very friendly and it is a great place to grow up in. The schools here are pretty good. In fact, Chesterfield High School is ranked in the top 10 schools for the state of South Carolina in graduation rate with 93%. However, Chesterfield County is not very good and there is not that many job opportunities for young people coming right out of college. I think Chesterfield is a great place to raise a family but there is not much to do so if you are single and looking for somewhere to live, I do not recommend Chesterfield county.
Greetings, I've stayed here all my life and I truly thank God for being raised here. Chesterfield sc is a small town with a lot of big hearts here. Through the years this small town has grown a lot. From stores, population, graduation rates of the schools and championships that's been through this county. Here in Chesterfield we have 3 other towns in the country that we love dearly also, Cheraw, Pageland, and my Mcbee. We take pride in our Law in Forcement and apploude them on the great works that they are doing in own town.
