Official Website

The county was erected (formed) in 1785, but was part of what was then known as Cheraws District until 1800, at which time Chesterfield became a district itself. Under the post-American Civil War (1861-1865) state constitution of 1867, passed during the Reconstruction era, South Carolina districts became counties with home rule. The county is named for Chesterfield County in Virginia.
