Yards of Yarn

Local residents had a chance to reminisce about the area’s textile heritage with Yards of Yarn at the Hagood Community Center in Pickens. The community center was the perfect site for the show about the history of textile mills in the Upstate, as it was once a mill school in the heart of the Pickens textile mill village. Those in attendance had a chance to hear stories and look at old photos and other artifacts and mementos from the textile mill communities of the early 1900s. Upstate musicians Hunter Holmes and Steve McGaha also performed songs of the era and gave historical perspectives of the songs.
