Pacolet Historic Mill District


Pacolet SC
Area: Pacolet
(864) 474-9504

The Mill Village recaptures the history and culture of the Pacolet Mill community. The village was built with the 'vision of providing cultural, spiritual, recreational, educational and jobs for the people who agreed to move here.' Although the industry has been removed from the area, the footprints still remain. Designed by landscape architect Earle Draper in the early 1900's, these footprints contain paved infrastructure, an amphitheater that seats 2,500 people on the river and unique concrete pergolas. The present Town Hall, once the business office for the industry, has been beautifully restored with a mural welcoming people to Pacolet and showcasing the entire planned community. Within the historic district there are over 250 arts-and-craft styles homes which is the largest concentration of this architecture in South Carolina. Dating back to 1927, the finest example of arts-and-crafts style interior is located in Pacolet Mills Baptist Church.
