Pelzer Heritage, County look for options on Pelzer Mill property


Members of the Pelzer Heritage Commission and Pelzer Mills Property Board met with Anderson County officials Wednesday to discuss possibilities and look over the Pelzer Mills Property. After recently acquiring the properties, members of both organizations have applied for grants for additional cleanup and are eventually hoping to develop parts of it into recreational and possible commercial use sometime in the future. Pictured are (l-r) Pelzer Heritage Commission Vice President Larry Coker, County Administrator Rusty Burns, Anderson County Council District 7 Representative Cindy Wilson (seated), Anderson County Economic Development Director Burris Nelson, Pelzer Mills Prioperties Board Member Wayne Fowler and Pelzer Historic Commission member Gilbert Garrett (front right).
