Walhalla South Carolina is considered a gateway to the South Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains. The town of Walhalla South Carolina is situated in the northwestern section of the state. Founded in 1850 by German migrators, the name Walhalla, pronounced “Valhalla,” came from the Norse mythology which means “The Garden of the Gods. Soon after the South Carolina town became the county seat of Oconee in 1868, new colonists began to move into the area, eventually reducing the German population. While much of the German influence is gone, the town is hoast to the annual Oktoberfest. Walhalla’s South Carolina points of interests include the St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Oconee Heritage Center and nearby Issaqueena Falls Stumphouse Tunnel. The downtown South Carolina area has a variety of shops offering, pottery, antiques, jewelry, baskets and clothing.
