About The Area
Located in the Western Upstate is Anderson, South Carolina which is the county seat for Anderson County. The city originated in 1826 and was named after General Robert Anderson. One reason many people started flocking to the area is because of its location right on I-85 between Atlanta and Charlotte which is a great spot for textiles, industry, and innovation. A fun fact about Anderson is that it was one of the first cities in the state to get electricity in 1895 and home to the first cotton gin that ran off of electricity! Ever since its founding, the area has been booming with popularity for 3 main reasons which are location, price point, and things to do.
