The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

Originally a lumber town with six sawmills, Salem became an agricultural town latching onto cotton production.


Today the area is well known for outdoor activities and mountain adventures. Lake Jocassee is one of the most pristine lakes in South Carolina with several waterfalls that can best be reached by boat.
