Ever hear of the Three C's? Or CCC's. This stands for the Civilian Conservation Corps created during the depression to generate jobs for the country. During this time, Congress also created the Public Works Administration which proved helpful to South Carolina. They created Lake Greenwood an over 11,000 acre pristine lake that has gone virtually undiscovered!
Greenwood County bought more than 250 parcels of land in a then dry lake basin which had been cleared by the CCC's for development. It was decied that a river, dam and lake would be created to provide electricity to the growing towns of Greenwood and Ninety Six, SC
With a Regional Hospital, Performing Arts Center, Lander University and Piedmont Technical College within minutes, Lake Greenwood and Ninety Six are growing. Also with it's many amenities in the lake focused communities which are almost self contained, the retirement community is a growing influence in the area.
Thing is...the properties within the lake communities are so affordable! Some as low as $250K with FULL access to the PGA golf courses, club houses, pools, marinas and docks!
We've come a long way since the depression. I wanted to tell you a little about the lake itself, but the lake is not the only element of the area although it is the focus point for real estate. The towns of Greenwood and Ninety Six are so close and homes of all price points are available.
Contact me with any questions you have regarding Lake Greenwood!
