Mills in Honea Path and Belton

This high school lesson has students examining photographs of the mill towns of Honea Path and Belton.  Students also read oral histories of mill workers from Betsey Wakefield Teter’s Textile Town: Spartanburg County, South Carolina (Hub City Writers Project, 2002).  Finally, students view exhibits on mill life at the Anderson County Museum.
