OUR TOWN | Lake City

June 11, 2019 - Posted in Digital by Charles Dymock

“I think what makes Lake City so unique is when you come to Lake City, what you expect is not what you get - you get more,” says Lake City Artfields Consultant, Carla Angus.  Over recent years, this once-desolate town has transformed itself into a thriving economic and cultural scene. 

Located just twenty-four miles south of Florence, this remote town is home to some of the most special events in South Carolina, earning it 2018’s ‘Best Small-Town Cultural Scene’ by USA Today.

Local business owner of Mosaic Clothing, Leah Norwood,says, “I would describe it [Lake City] as a place that has a lot of charm.  To me, the reason why it has a lot of charm is because of the people here, and there’s just something special about that”. 

With this type of reputation, it’s hard not to want to see it yourself.
