Originally settled on the Santee River at Waco Landing, Vance’s Ferry was an important link between Charleston, Camden and points in North Carolina and Tennessee. The town was moved a few miles from the river because the mosquito-infested swampland where it was previously located was considered unhealthy; therefore “Ferry” was dropped from the name. Access to the Santee Cooper lakes is less than five minutes away. Some of the best peaches in South Carolina are grown in Vance.
