Welcome to the City of Easley, and I hope that you enjoy your time in our community. Easley has a strong foundation that dates to its founding in 1874. The community has grown through the years from a railroad boom town, to a textile hub, and now to an economic and residential core for Pickens County and the surrounding region. Easley is an energetic and growing community with an outstanding quality of life! We have excellent schools, various recreational offerings, and a wide variety of places to call home! We have also enjoyed hosting events like the Farmer’s Market, Fourth of July Festival, and numerous community events and look forward to getting the community together again for these events.
We celebrate our roots and history through the renovation and growth of Easley. The historic Woodside Mill and the Silos are nearing completion as we see historic buildings find a new purpose for future generations. One of our proudest accomplishments has been transforming the old Pickens Railroad Line into the 8.5 mile long Doodle Trail that welcomes over 300,000 users per year! Users can access the trail in the center of downtown while visiting many of our local shops, restaurants, and other businesses.
We love to see our community at play and Easley has numerous parks that offer a little something for everyone. These include eight community and regional parks like the Doodle Park along the Doodle Trail and the Nalley Brown Nature Trail where you can find a quiet place to relax. There are also numerous athletic offerings for children and adults alike at our J.B. Red Owens and Pope Field sport complexes. Once a year Easley is a destination for the whole world as we welcome national and international teams for the Senior League World Series!
We hope that whether you are visiting Easley or considering it being your home, that you see why Easley is a great community that is welcoming to all.
Butch Womack, Mayor
