Chapin is often known as the "Capital of Lake Murray" because of its location on the lake. If you've been to Chapin, then you've probably been wowed by the hospitality of its residents. In fact, it's named one of the Top 10 Places to Live in South Carolina!

Chapin may be a small, quaint town, but it has plenty of interesting history tied to it. The town is named for Martin Chapin, who bought the land in the late 1800s. Since then, Chapin has grown, and it even has a house on the National Register of Historic Places (the Robinson-Hiller House).

Chapin is rich with tradition. Every year, it hosts the Chapin Labor Day Festival, which lasts three days. There's a parade, a carnival, and even a car show to enjoy.

Just like Chapin, Irmo has the benefits of small-town lake living. It's right along the shores of Lake Murray, and only ten miles from the capital of South Carolina. Irmo was named by combining the names C.J. Iredell and H.C. Moseley, two railroad company men.

Irmo has plenty of Christmas cheer because it was chartered on Christmas Eve of 1890. Even though Irmo has a great sense of community, there's no official downtown area--probably because all the fun you could want happens on the lake!

Every year, Irmo is home to Okra Strut, a festival and parade. It originally started in 1973 as a way to raise money for the library, but its popularity has kept it around after all those years. It has grown from an arts and crafts festival to an event with carnival rides, food, dancing, and farm animals.
