Welcome to the Town of Olanta, located in western Florence County and the culturally rich Pee Dee Region of South Carolina. Established in 1908, our Town is the embodiment of old-fashioned Southern charm and hospitality. Olanta is steeped in agricultural history and surrounded by idyllic farmland but central to world-class cities, renowned beaches and endless places to experience the region’s vibrant heritage.

While preserving our tranquil small-town community atmosphere, we are continually striving to provide opportunities for economic growth and development, community involvement and an inviting, safe place for residents and visitors.  We invite you to explore our site and learn more about our Town. Whether you are looking for a brief respite to experience our Southern traditions or considering a move to leave the hectic city life behind, we welcome you to visit us and experience the charm of Olanta.

Michael Welch, Mayor
