The city of Anderson is the county seat of Anderson County, South Carolina and has a population of over 25,000. Nicknamed “The Electric City” and “The Friendliest City in South Carolina”, Anderson is the smallest of the three principal cities that compose the Upstate region. Despite its small size, Anderson has become a major manufacturing hub of the region.

The original settlers of Anderson were farmers from the north who grew corn and raised hogs; eventually, the agricultural community gave way to cotton which became the cash crop of the area. As a result of the economic stimulus produced by cotton crops, Anderson became filled with textile mills, water mills, and cotton gins by the early 20th century. Anderson earned its nickname, “The Electric City”, because it was the first city in the United States to have a continuous supply of electric power, as well as home to the first cotton gin in the world to be operated by electricity. Duke Power Company (now Duke Energy) and Carolina Power & Light maintain facilities in Anderson to this day. Other companies that enhanced Anderson’s manufacturing base include Eastern Kodak Company, Michelin Tire Corp, and Singer Manufacturing Company. Currently over 230 manufacturers, including 22 international companies, lie within Anderson’s city limits. Top industries are automotive products, metal products, industrial machinery, plastics, and textiles.
