The History of North Augusta, South Carolina:

North Augusta is located along the banks of the Savannah River, in Aiken County, South Carolina. The area has been inhabited by Europeans for well over 300 years. Just north of the current city, rapids form in the River, marking the farthest North the Savannah is navigable. For hundreds of years Indian tribes met at that spot to ford the river and trade.

In the mid-1600s the English founded a trading post called Savannah Town to take advantage of the merchant traffic along the river. That settlement faltered soon after, however. Later the area was home to a settlement named Campbelltown that prospered due to the growing tobacco trade in the area. Once again, the growing village failed- this time due to opposition from the established town of Augusta on the Georgia side of the river.

 Charleston's best friend expressThe third effort to grow a city on the Carolina banks of the Savannah River was the founding of the city of Hamburg in 1821 by an eccentric genius named Henry Schultz. When the very first railroad in the US was laid in 1833, connecting Hamburg to Charleston via 'The Best Friend Express', it looked like Henry was going to be able to strangle Augusta. Merchant traffic was being diverted away from the river down to Port Royal and the Port of Savannah, and being redirected by rail to the port of Charleston. In addition, Henry built a covered pedestrian bridge across the River, getting quite wealthy on toll traffic in the process.

The city of Augusta struck back in 1848 by using Irish and Chinese labor to build the Augusta Canal. This canal provided power to many 'manufactories' and mills in the city, and with one stroke bypassed the Savannah River rapids. This meant that the city of Augusta could regain some river traffic and provide plentiful water power to any employer that needed it. When several years later the railroads built a bridge across the river, allowing rail traffic to deliver goods straight to Augusta, Henry Schultz's Hamburg was doomed. Poor Henry died penniless. It's not known where he is buried, but a bluff overlooking the River bears his name today as Schultz Hill. 

In the end, Augusta provided for settling the opposite banks of the river on it's own. The malaria and 'river sickness' along the banks of the River was avoided by homesteading on the higher banks of South Carolina. Initially some wealthier citizens made the move across, such as Walter Jackson who built the grand Lookaway Hall in 1895, and James Jackson who built Rosemary Hall in 1902. The massive Hampton Terrace hotel also began construction in 1902, opening for business the following year. It was the largest wooden structure in the United States at one time. Intended as a resort hotel, much of it burned down in a tragic fire in 1916. The hotel could hold over 500 guests and was considered one of the finest hotels in the country. Parts of the complex remains visible today, if you know where to look. A lodge known as The Seven Gables was built by the owners of the hotel and gained national notoriety in the 1980's when blacks were denied entrance to a restaurant located there. 

Ultimately the city of North Augusta was founded in 1906 by James Jackson, and the rest, as they say, is history.

If you would like to read further about North Augusta history, I found this excellent post about North Augusta and the Hampton Terrace Hotel.  The same site has articles about the Augusta Canal, walking the CSRA, and Hammond's Ferry (and probably others I did not see).
