Welcome to the Pee Dee!

Here’s the ideal place to experience the heritage of the agrarian lifestyle of the old South and its relaxed way of life.

This seven-county region, named for the original Native America Pee Dee Indians who inhabited it long ago and subsequently the Pee Dee Rivers, still offers the natural wonders that attracted the Native Americans and early settlers. A sparkling gem of nature’s best, Pee Dee Country has a unique combination of scenic parks and natural areas as well as a history spanning both Revolutionary and Civil War times, reflected in its wonderfully preserved historic homes, plantations and buildings.
