Fondly known as the Electric City, Anderson acquired its nickname in the late 19th century when it became the first city in the South to make use of long-distance cables to carry electricity generated from hydroelectric power plants beginning in 1897. The City of Anderson featured electric streetcars, street lamps, and the world’s first electrically-powered cotton gin. Today, it is also known both as the “City of Hospitality” and the “Friendliest City in South Carolina.”
Anderson is also the home of Anderson University, a private college that serves approximately 3,000 students. Anderson also lies just a short drive from beautiful Lake Hartwell, one of the Southeast’s largest and most popular recreational lakes.
