Rincon began as a Salzburger New Ebenezer settlement along the Savannah River, but once the railroad came to town, the sleepy town was awakened The town’s line and grid street system, like that in use
in Savannah, helped the town to settle in an organized manner. Sawmills, cotton gins and turpentine stills popped up, bringing with them a booming economy. Rincon was incorporated in August 1927.
The town is now home to more than 4,000 people who enjoy a wide variety of businesses, retail outlets, restaurants and grocery stores. The public services and town infrastructure provide the potential for growth and business development, making Rincon a great place to live and work.
