Harlem, Georgia is located just outside Augusta in fast-growing Columbia County.  Our historic downtown features locally-owned shops and restaurants, and we have quiet neighborhoods and a friendly hometown feel that you just won’t find anywhere else.  Come for a visit, and we think you’ll agree that Harlem is a wonderful place to live, work, worship and raise a family!
