Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, skirted by lakes and rivers, Anderson County lies along the South Carolina Heritage Corridor in the state's northwestern corner. Positioned between Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina on what was once Cherokee hunting ground, Anderson is studded with landmarks from its past. From pioneer log cabins to stately mansions. The county seat, Anderson, was heralded as the "City of Hospitality" for its gracious air and beautiful gardens. During the industrial revolution it was reborn as the "Electric City" for its pioneering use of hydroelectric power.
