I love Hartsville, SC! The local college brings people from all over to experience the little town. There is nothing better than a community having a home town feel when you enter the town. Any and everyone can fit right in and feel like they are apart of each others lives.

The town is typically a Southern Style with a simple grace and slow pace. The downtown business district has grown. The sights are pleasant and has some historic interest. A private university resides in the small town, Coker College. Its a great school. Located right by the college is the Governors School of Mathematics and Science. The industry to work in the area is the following: Sonoco, Duke Power, Tally Metals and many small businesses run by owners which reside in the town. Shopping is at a minimal but with Florence, and Charlotte only a small drive away makes for a nice day trip. It is a great town to live and is and forever growing. I like my little town.
Hartsville is a small but growing town that is very family friendly. They have many festivals downtown and even have a local farmers market once a month. There is many places to go to hang out with people such as a local coffee shop, a local frozen yogurt place and bars. The people are friendly and there is many job positions open.
