History & History Related Items

A good history page for North Augusta.

The area has been known by several different names before settling on North Augusta. First was Savanna Town around 1700. This community only lasted about 50 years due to competition from Augusta Georgia across the river. Campbell Town was settled around 1800 near the rapids of the Savannah River. It also eventually lost out to Augusta Georgia when the tobacco trade began to go to the Georgia side of the river. The third name was Hamburg and it was founded around the mid-1800's as a home port for a bustling steamboat company. The town of Hamburg did well at first, but again, Augusta won out when a railroad bridge was built eliminating the need for Hamburg as a transportation center. The town faded in about 60 years. In 1902, James U. Jackson had an idea for a new town he would call North Augusta. He was met with much resistance, but he persevered. He found financial backing, built a new bridge over the river to North Augusta and built his new town. The town of North Augusta was incorporated
