Chapin is conveniently located in the Midlands of South Carolina, in the northern part of Lexington County near the center of the state. We are close enough to South Carolina’s capital city of Columbia that many residents commute the 30 minutes to work in governmental, professional, and other occupations in Columbia. Just two miles from Interstate 26, the Greater Chapin area includes parts of both Richland and Newberry counties and is bounded by Lake Murray and the Broad River.

We enjoy a temperate climate where winters are mild with an average temperature of 57 degrees and an occasional snowfall. Spring and fall temperatures average 75 degrees. The summers extend from May through September, with average temperatures of 90 degrees.

Chapin is a community on the move, with great amenities; a thriving business community that includes professional services, retail, distribution services, high-tech firms and healthcare companies including  Palmetto Health & Lexington Medical Center among the mix.

Home to award-winning schools in the Lexington-Richland School District 5, Chapin schools boast a number of excellent academic, athletic and extra-curricular programs for students of all ages.

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.

Chapin’s close proximity to Lake Murray provides ample opportunities to enjoy boating, swimming and other recreational activities associated with lake living. We also enjoy a thriving arts community, with the Crooked Creek Art League, area galleries, and the Chapin Community Theatre adding to our quality of life.

Whether you are young or old, Chapin is a great place to work, live and play. We invite you to visit our community and see for yourself why Chapin might be a great place to call home.
