By 1941, the small town of Cayce had become predominantly a railroad town. The railroads made a substantial contribution to the city with the number of local citizens it employed and the payroll it generated for many years. Both the Southern and the Seaboard Railroads handled passengers and mail to and from Cayce and beyond At that time, the railroad, lumberyard, quarry and fertilizer plant were the principal places of employment. The City experienced phenomenal growth during the 1940’s. This period of time marked the initial expansion of the Columbia metropolitan area as a result of the World War II boom in population and economy.
The area now known as “The Avenues”, one of Cayce’s most beautiful present-day residential neighborhoods, was then known as “the field” because the Guignard family farmed the area around what is now Brookland-Cayce High School for many years. With the World War II veterans returning home and the need for new homes in the area, a wise real estate entrepreneur developed the area and gave it its initial name, Guignard Estates.
By the 1950’s the new McMillan (Blossom Street) Bridge was built to better connect this thriving suburb to Columbia. In an effort to promote orderly growth along the rapidly developing Knox Abbott Drive, Cayce’s Planning Commission adopted a master plan. This plan would set guidelines for planned development along this corridor. Cayce has always been a well-balanced city with a good tax base and with sufficient industry to help carry the tax load.
From the upscale Moss Creek neighborhoods to the charming “Avenues” and other desirable housing nearer the Congaree River, Cayce has a diverse mixture of housing choices. Cayce provides a small town atmosphere while enjoying the amenities of the large metropolitan capital city just across the river.
In the 1980’s a group of dedicated citizens approached city government on the possibility of building a museum that would chronicle the history of Cayce’s rich heritage. Using only grant money and citizen donations, this group of Commissioners built the Cayce Historical Museum. This was accomplished in only three short years from groundbreaking to completion. The key was presented to the city in April 1991 when the museum’s doors officially opened to the public.
The Cayce Historical Museum is a full time museum and has entertained visitors from all 50 states and international visitors from many foreign countries. The museum has become an important educational and cultural entity for Cayce and beyond and has done much to enhance the quality of life, making Cayce a good place to live and work.
Dating back to Cayce’s earliest development, the Congaree River has played a dominant role of strategic importance. Today, development on both sides of the river is a driving force in the continuing development of Cayce, the “City by the River.”
