The Surrounding Communities

There are several small communities in the vicinity of Pacolet with distinctive names. These are not incorporated or official towns. They have been known by their present names for many years. For the most part, there are not exact boundaries of these communities. You know when you get there but are not exactly sure when you enter or leave it. There is not much written about the history of most of these communities that I could find. I have attempted to show the location of these communities on the accompanying maps. A short description is given for each community. Please let me know if you have any further information, photographs or corrections to what is on this web site.
