Located in Lexington and Richland Counties in South Carolina – 20 minutes from downtown Columbia and a short hop to Lake Murray. Irmo was chartered on Christmas Eve in 1890. The combination of two of Irmo’s founding Fathers names resulted in the name “Irmo”. Columbiana Centre mall, built in 1990, is the center piece of the Harbison shopping area. It is the largest mall in the Columbia area and is filled with shoppers from the surrounding towns on any given day, and locals can attest, especially Saturday!! In addition to the mall, the Harbison area boasts a 2 mile stretch where you can find just about anything from Lumber at Lowes to a smoothy at the Tropical Smoothy Cafe! Irmo is home to the #1 Rated Best Schools in South Carolina with the Lexington/Richland 5 School District. The average temperature in February is 55 – 61 degrees. The median age is 37 years and there is an almost equal number of males and females!!
A great mix of hometown charm and easy access to the highways toward Charleston, Charlotte and Augusta! The town parks are great for a Sunday picnic or those prom pictures!
