Located off the shore of Lake Murray and only ten miles from Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, Irmo was a sleepy little town of 500 people in the early 1970's. Today with more than 12,000 residents Irmo is one of the country's most sought after places to live.

The Cherokee Indians first roamed the waterways and woodlands of this area while following the Cherokee Trail. Later German and Swiss immigrants were the first Westerners to settle the area bounded by the Broad and Saluda Rivers and extending to the Newberry county line. Germans, using land grants from the King of England, settled the Dutch Fork area in the mid 18th century. Self-sufficient farms were established in spite of the rocky, red clay that was unsuitable for plantation farming.

On Christmas Eve in 1890, the town of Irmo was chartered. This was in done in response to the anticipated opening of the railroad (CN&L) in 1891. The unusual name, "Irmo" was a molding of the names of the two men most responsible in this new venture: Captain C.J. Iredell and Henry C. Moseley. The location of Irmo was selected because a site approximately 10 miles from the city of Columbia was needed for refueling of the wood-burning locomotives and water replenishment.

A quarter of a century later, the largest earthen dam in the world (at that time) was built across the Saluda River, forming Lake Murray, named for after William S. Murray, one of the dam's engineers.

A large percentage of the land in the Irmo area was covered by timber and supplied all of the lumber needs for the project. All told, over 4,000 people were employed in the raising of the history making dam. The actual project took nearly three years to complete, first started on the site on September 21, 1927 and was finished up on June 28, 1930. The Lake Murray dam covers 99 acres, 208 feet high and is 1,150 feet in width at the bottom, and 25 feet wide at the top. The intake towers required more than 636,000 bags of cement, 122,000 tons of stone and gravel, 62,000 tons of sand and almost 4,000 tons of steel plate.

Formal education began here in the 1800's with a one room school located near the present Irmo Elementary School, now a part of the award-winning school district Lexington/Richland 5. Irmo educates many talented young people at eleven elementary schools, four middle schools, and three high schools.

Located across the dam from Lexington, along with the construction of Interstate 26 adjacent to Irmo in the late 1950's, made possible the continuing rapid growth of the greater area.

The beautiful Lake Murray provides much sought after real estate along its 528 miles of shoreline and provides a recreational paradise for the residents of Irmo--- truly the "Gateway to Lake Murray".
