Ram Cat Alley

The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

In the early 1900s, tons of alley cats used to gather outside of Fred Hopkin's Fish Market. Before long, there were so many cats the locals adopted the phrase "Ram Cat Alley." The fish market is long gone, but the name stuck. Now Ram Cat Alley has a little bit of everything - pottery, antiques, fine cuisine, and books.
