Anderson’s Mill – Spartanburg, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Spartanburg County Photos | Anderson’s Mill
The historic Anderson’s Mill is believed to have been built in the late 18th century and is listed in the National Historic Register. The mill is located along the North Tyger River on Anderson Mill Road near downtown Spartanburg.
Anderson’s Mill was once a water-powered grist mill and operated commercially until the 1960s. During its long history, it has been known as Nicholl’s Fort, Nichol’s Mill, and Tanner’s Mill. When James “Tyger Jim” Anderson acquired the mill in 1831, it gained its current appellation, Anderson’s Mill.
For more information about restoration efforts for this mill, visit the Tyger River Foundation.
