In the 1750s, German immigrants established Rincon along the Savannah River. Because of its early settlement, Rincon lays claim to a deep historical heritage; built from handmade brick, the Jerusalem Church, the oldest building in the state, stands in Rincon and still serves today as a meeting place for the town's Lutheran congregation.

Today Rincon is an important catalyst for economic growth in Effingham County, and its leadership prides itself on providing its residents quality services without charging them property taxes.
