Overview
Revolutionary War general Robert Anderson is honored today in northwestern South Carolina through two namesakes: Anderson County and its county seat, also called Anderson. The town was the Palmetto State's first with long-run electrical power, and it therefore earned the early nickname of "The Electric City." Smaller towns in the county, including Belton, Honea Path, Piedmont, Pelzer, Pendleton, and Williamston, developed around depots serving the Greenville and Columbia Railroad.
