Our city has much to offer:

  • Our own local Police Department as well as support from Augusta/Richmond County Sheriffs Department.
  • Blythe Post Office
  • Mack's Convenience Store
  • Lek's Unique Knick Knacks Plus
  • Numerous Churches are located within our Community. 

We are pleased that you and your family have chosen Blythe as your new home. Enclosed I am providing contact information for the City of Blythe, various agencies, and a brief history of the City. Information provided is our most current available and may change without notice.
