About The Area
Pelzer, SC was founded back in the 1800s as a mill town on the Saluda River around several mill sites being developed by the Pelzer Manufacturing Company. The town actually got its name from one of the founders of the company, Francis J. Pelzer. You can find the quaint town on the border of both Anderson and Greenville Counties, but it's officially part of Anderson County.
The mills along the river drew their power from two dams with the help of the first generators ever sold by General Electric, which is still a thriving business today. Another cool fact about the town is that famous baseball player Shoeless Joe Jackson actually grew up in Pelzer.
When it comes to food in the area, there are several places to try! Of course no town in the south is complete without some good BBQ and Southern Smoke has an amazing brisket. There's also City Scape Winery, a family run craft winery and vineyard that has an amazing atmosphere and of course fantastic wine selections. Now if you're more into the craft beer scene, there's Lincoln Taproom which is a quaint brewery where you can enjoy live music and the outdoor biergarten.
The big draw of Pelzer is the Saluda River! Locals enjoy getting out on the water for boating, kayaking, and just enjoying nature. Similar to other areas in the Upstate, the town has many historical mill buildings from the original villages, but there are also plans to develop these in the future. There are several established neighborhoods in the area with several new construction developments in the works.
