I love the small town atmosphere and the way that every person treats you like family. Everyone always ask how you are and how your family is, and that means a lot to me.

I have been a residence in the town of Cowpens for approximately 25 years. I have seen a lot of growth but I know there is room for more. I would love for the town to have more traditional restaurants and a grocery store. Years ago there was a grocery store.
Cowpens is a small town that is very friendly. Cowpens is a great area to raise a family. We have great schools and its a historic town. There is a lot of history to the town, as the town played a huge role in the Revolutionary War.
