Welcome to the website for the City of Easley, South Carolina.
Our thriving municipality, with a population of nearly 18,000, is a lively and
inviting community with a charm that interweaves the rich traditions of
our past with the progress of the present. Easley is a city of energetic and forward-looking people from all walks of life who are genuinely concerned about their community and how it grows and prospers.
Easley has one of the most pro-active, pro-business Chambers
of Commerce in the state. Our aim is to make all citizens and visitors alike feel that they are part of and welcome in this community. With all of these attributes, I
trust you too will find that Easley is a friendly and pleasant place to live, visit, work, and play.
We are proud of our community’s heritage and achievements and its potential for the future. While
being home to many fine eating and shopping establishments, Easley is not far from larger urban areas, only a car trip away from tourist areas like the hour long drive to the
Blue Ridge mountains and
we are only 5 hours from the SC
coastline, and Easley is the largest city in Pickens
County. We have a notable recreation department that
plays host to international sporting events like the Big
League World Series. We are only minutes from several
colleges and universities. We believe Easley is the ideal small city—large enough to provide excellent service but small enough to know and care about its citizens—a place where friends and strangers alike are greeted with warmth by all. Easley is the type of community where neighbors know each other and where the anonymity that characterizes many large cities does not exist.
That is why our website's theme and focus is "ALL ABOUT EASLEY."
Larry Bagwell, Mayor
