Williamston, South Carolina
South Carolina Anderson County Williamston
Williamston is located in eastern Anderson County. In 1842 a local farmer discovered a mineral spring and believed its water had healing properties. Word spread and soon people were traveling great distances to "take the waters." Until the beginning of the Civil War, the area boomed as a health resort and was sometimes referred to as the "Saratoga of the South."
Today, the site of the mineral spring is a park where the community holds the Spring Water Festival each year in April.
Anderson is the largest city near Williamston. Here is a map of the Anderson area.
