Manetta Mill – Lando, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Chester County Photos  |  Manetta Mill

The textile mill village of Lando in Chester County was established in the 1760s. The town’s location along Fishing Creek made it a desirable place to build water mills, which kept the town thriving until the last mill, Manetta Mill, closed in 1991. In its prime, Manetta Mill was the largest producer of blankets in the world. Today around 20 people remain in the Lando community.

Reflections on Manetta Mill

Contributor Peter Krenn adds, “Lando is what’s left of an old mill town. They do have a museum, but it’s only open one day a week. This mill tower is about all that’s left of a once-thriving mill. They do have ‘Lando Beach’ nearby, about a ten-foot stretch of beach on the creek.”
