Born of the Industrial Revolution, Easley started with a single rail line brought to the area by Robert Elliott Holcombe at the end of the Civil War along with his promise to build and donate the first depot. That single line expanded and cotton rolled in, spawning the textile industry prominent in small Southern towns. If it was industry that gave birth to Easley, it was its perfect location amidst the breathtaking beauty in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a feeling more akin to family than community that gave the town life. Minutes from gorgeous mountain vistas and lakes, a few minutes more from larger cities, and a day's ride from the coast made Easley a perfect place to live, work, worship, and play year-round.

The photographs in Images of America: Easley demonstrate the unique growth of a small township named for Gen. William K. Easley; to a town comprised of several interdependent mill villages, each with its own culture, churches, schools, and families; to the thriving city of today—rich in history and full of promise for an even greater future. Through the pages of this volume, local journalist Brantli Jane Owens continues to document and bear witness to the evolution of Easley as her family has done for over 100 years.
