Progress and the past go hand-in-hand in the historic town of Pendleton, South Carolina located in Anderson County. Founded in 1790 on land which just a few years earlier had been a part of the Cherokee Indian Nation, Pendleton now is one of the largest historic districts in the nation. A mixture of rugged Scots-Irish immigrants and affluent South Carolina Low Country planters and politicians created the foundation on which Pendleton continues to grow. Now a modern-day community with fine homes, quaint shops, excellent restaurants and proud, friendly residents, the town is worth discovering-or rediscovering- as an excellent place to visit for awhile or stay for a lifetime. The spotlight is not only on the majestic past, but on the opportunities for the present and the future.

Piedmont is located in Anderson County on the Saluda River where the water flows over huge rocks on its way from the mountains to the sea. The Indians and early settlers called it "Big Shoals of the Saluda." Irish immigrant, David Garrison, built his grist mill upon the shoals, giving it its second name, Garrison Shoals. When Henry Pinckney Hammett bought the property for his cotton mill, using the water power of the shoals, the name was again changed, this time to Piedmont, "Foot of the Mountains." This name was added to his charter for Piedmont Manufacturing Company and also as a railroad station.
