City of Bamberg


A Message from Mayor Blain Crosby

"We are mighty proud of our hometown; proud enough that we ask you to consider making Bamberg your home, too.   Bamberg is a truly wholesome place where you can safely raise your family, a quiet place where you can enjoy your retirement years, a vibrant place where you can successfully start a small business, and a place with a pro-industry perspective that gladly accommodates and warmly welcomes new employers to our area.  And, most of all, Bamberg is a city with a true sense of community where we strive to work together as neighbors for the common good of all our citizens.

We take pride in our city's rich history.  A leisurely drive in and around Bamberg will reveal some of the finest examples of Southern charm.  Bamberg City Council is also striving to further enhance our city's beauty, business opportunities, and overall quality of life.  We are currently constructing a park complete with tree-lined walking trails along Highway 78, adding a landscaped parking area in the downtown business district, have received funding to widen Highway 301 through the city and are expanding even further our premiere municipal recreation facilities.

From our high-quality public schools and available professional healthcare to our boundless leisure activities and hospitable people, we feel Bamberg is an ideal place for families, retirees, and industries.  We stand with open arms to welcome you into our community.  Yes, we are proud of Bamberg for what is has been, for what it is, and for what it will be.  We are a city with a rich heritage and a promising tomorrow... and an absolutely wonderful place for you to call home."
