A History of Brailsford, South Carolina

Found on quite a few maps of South Carolina as early as 1779 and into the early 1800s, a small village named Brailsford can be found north and west of the the town of Beaufort, situated along the Coosawatchie River in what is today Colleton County.

Nothing else is currently known about this village/hamlet in early South Carolina.


In the 1850s, the small town of Brailsfordville shows up on many maps in the same location - until the 1870s, then it disappears. Neither Brailsford nor Brailsfordville was ever granted a US Post Office.
