The town of Easley and Powdersville are both located in historic Anderson County. Located in the northeastern corner of Anderson County,
South Carolina. Named for Revolutionary War leader Robert Anderson, Anderson boasts a mild climate with four distinct seasons, a vast
lake and a thriving economic and cultural community. Located along Interstate 85, midway between Atlanta, Ga. and Charlotte, N.C., Anderson
County is home to 55,950-acre Hartwell Lake, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lake with nearly 1,000 miles of shoreline for residential and
recreational use. Anderson is within sight of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and is a morning drive from the Atlantic Ocean beaches of
Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand. Its communities have a small-town feel that make people want to stay. But the area, with one of the
lowest costs of living in the United States, is a thriving industrial, commercial and tourist center.
