West Pelzer has a rich history as a healthy place to live, work, and play. We celebrate where we were, where we are currently, and where we are going. West Pelzer is forever being revitalized, rejuvenated, and re-energized through new businesses and growth of our core values and vision.


West Pelzer has a population of approximately 969, and is located roughly 30 minutes away from many major cities – including Greenville, Anderson, and Easley – in the heart of upstate South Carolina. As a progressive municipality based on building relationships and community, we strive to be an integral part of both our residents’ lives and Anderson County as a whole. Being situated so closely to interstates 85 and 385 also allows for easy access to many larger key interstates, such as I-20, I-40, and I-26.
