Welcome to Irmo South Carolina

Your ideal southern town.

This beautiful community located in Lexington County, South Carolina, started out as a water and gas stop for trains between Columbia and Newberry. Incorporated December of 1890, the town received it name, Irmo, after two railroad officials, Mr. Iredell and Mr. Moseley. Known as a sleepy, farming town, Irmo remained small and somewhat rural until the 1960's when the first subdivisions went up. Despite a population boon over the last fifty years, Irmo still maintains a calm, southern mentality. Community comes first, which means we have the best schools and the safest neighborhoods. With a thriving local business sector, Irmo is a great place to start your small business or expand your large business.

The Greater Irmo Chamber of Commerce welcomes your business and your family to Irmo. If you would like to schedule a meeting with us to discuss any questions you may have about the Irmo community please call us at 803-749-9355 or  email us here.
