South Carolina State Waltz
Adopted on July 21, 2000.
The Richardson Waltz was designated as the official State Waltz by Act No. 389 in 2000. This waltz, a beautiful and soulful melody, is a memento of the musical tradition of the Richardson family, descendants of General Richard Richardson, and has for many generations played an unofficial but important role in the musical history of South Carolina. It was handed down from one family member to another in the family of General Richard Richardson for more than 200 years in Clarendon County.
