Welcome from the Mayor

Greetings, and welcome to Chapin! We are a community on the move, with great amenities, award winning schools, a thriving business community, and beautiful Lake Murray, providing residents and visitors a wide array of experiences and opportunities.

Known as the Capital of Lake Murray, we have many people who have chosen to enjoy all that lake living offers on a year-round basis. From water sports and fishing to casual boat rides and beautiful sunsets, the lake really is the Jewel of South Carolina™.

Chapin is so proud of its nationally-ranked public schools. Chapin High School recently completed extensive renovations and additions to its academic and extracurricular facilities, and the nearby Spring Hill High School and Center for Advanced Technical Studies offer a variety of exciting magnet and career readiness programs that will prepare our young people for productive lives in our fast growing region. And the new Chapin Middle School provides another state-of-the-art learning facility for our community.

We also enjoy a thriving business community, world-class healthcare facilities, wonderful recreational centers and a growing colony of talented artists in our town. Construction continues on Lexington County’s new Business and Technology Park, and the new Chapin Crossing shopping center and Chapin Furniture store are also taking shape. All of these projects will bring new job opportunities and investment to our community.

I invite you to take a look at our Discover Chapin video! As you will see, we have good reason to be Chapin Proud!

Whether you are looking for a new place to call home or just visiting family and friends in the area, we hope this website will be helpful to you as you learn more about our community.

Thank you for visiting our website, and please come back soon and often!

Mayor Al Koon
