The Town of Van Wyck, South Carolina is located near the crossroads of S.C. Highway 5 and U.S. 521 at the base of the Lancaster County panhandle. Although recently incorporated in 2017, the town has been a presence in the area stretching back to colonial times. Situated in a primarily agricultural and residential area with large wooded areas and natural habitats, Van Wyck is a quiet, welcoming community whose residents are dedicated to preserving the area’s unique character.
