Bamberg Welcomes You

Bamberg is Bamberg County's hub of government, public services, and activities. As the County Seat, Bamberg is home to the county administrative offices, the Bamberg County Library, the Bamberg County Health Department, the Bamberg County Office on Aging Thomas N. Rhoad Center, the County Historic Society, and the Bamberg County Economic Development Commission.


Bamberg, situated in the northern part of Bamberg County, is in the southern region of South Carolina, known as the Coastal Plains. For many years the incorporated area of the city of Bamberg was in the form of a circle with a 3-4 mile radius from a center point at the old Southern passenger station. Through the years the configuration of the town limits have changed but a marker signifying the old center of town is visible just off of the intersection of Hwy. 301 and Hwy. 78.
The City of Bamberg has partnered with Downtown Strategies to develop a customized five-year downtown action plan. Through this process, our teams will work together to examine the past, present, and future conditions of the downtown study area. Please take a few minutes to complete their anonymous input survey. Your feedback is important to the success of this partnership and the future of Downtown Bamberg.

All About the City of Bamberg

Bamberg has some of the best public schools in all of South Carolina. Bamberg-Ehrhardt School District One leads the entire six-county area in SAT and other standardized test scores and ranks in the top ten percentile among the state's 86 public school districts. With computers in all grade levels, a truly challenging curriculum, great teachers, and a low student/teacher ratio, our Bamberg schools are yet another example of our citizens' willingness to invest in our most treasured asset... our children.

From the Ness Sports Complex to Foster Park, no South Carolina city or town of any size can boast of better municipal recreational facilities, equipment, volunteers, and programs for their young people than the absolutely first-rate Bamberg City Recreation Department offers.
