Town of Ware Shoals

8 Mill Street, Ware Shoals, SC, USA

The town of Ware Shoals is shared between Abbeville, Greenwood, and Laurens Counties. Situated along the Saluda River, with 1,702 residents, the Town of Ware Shoals provides an easy-going way of life. It’s home to Irvin Pitts Park, also known as “The Shoals,” where many enjoy the large rocks, swimming holes, & fishing. The Saluda River was the natural resource that spawned the Town of Ware Shoals. The dam, the mill, and the town were born in the same year - 1902 - and the Ware Shoals Manufacturing Company (later renamed Riegel Textile Corporation) shaped the community and its citizens for more than 80 years .
