Anson County represents the best of both worlds – open, tranquil spaces in the rolling hills of the Piedmont and a dedicated business community.

The textile industry’s struggle in the past decade has only made Anson’s industrial and business community more determined to seek innovative solutions to improve the economic climate. Expanding and upgrading existing businesses are as much a focus as attracting new ones. 

As might be expected in this largely rural county, Ansonians find their entertainment out of doors through community parks, an 18-hole golf course, and fishing, hunting, and boating opportunities. However, access to “big city” amenities is only minutes away.
