City of Anderson

Anderson lies nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the state’s northwestern corner. In the mid-1700’s, General Robert Anderson, with General Andrew Pickens, explored the Cherokee land that became Anderson and the county seat. During the industrial revolution it was reborn as the “Electric City” for its pioneering use of hydroelectric power. Anderson’s downtown Historic District comprises a 16-block walking tour that includes the Anderson County Courthouse, the Sullivan Building, the P&N Railroad Depot, the Confederate Monument on the square, the Anderson County Museum, the Anderson County Library, the Old Reformer (1764 Revolutionary War cannon), and the Anderson County Arts Center (once the Carnegie Library).
