There, you will find a variety of shops and eateries as well as fun activities unique to the area, like the Riverbanks Zoo and college sports at the University of South Carolina. Another benefit of living in this community is residency in Kershaw County, which offers one of the lowest median property tax rates in the country. This aspect of living in our Kelsney Ridge community provides another form of affordability and compares favorably to the substantially higher rates in neighboring Richland County.
