History

Easley, South Carolina is approximately 12 miles from Greenville, South Carolina. It has been part of several different districts which are now called counties over the years since its original charter. The town of Easley was named for General William King Easley, a co-founder. It was chartered in 1874 and incorporated in 1901. After the Civil War General Easley became an attorney. He soon thereafter convinced the Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railway to establish itself in the Pickensville area, a nearby city located about a mile and a half south of where Easley is today. Easley had persuaded the railroad through his skill and ability to raise $100,000 to invest in the railroad.

The surrounding area encompasses the current day Easley and has changed many times as growth occurred over the years. For example, starting in 1798 one of the districts, the Washington district (now called counties), was eliminated. At the time the territory was divided into two distinct districts, the Greenville District and the Pendleton District. The newly created Pendleton District included Pickensville which would later include Easley.

Originally Pickensville thrived as a court house town. The streets were laid and soon after numerous buildings were constructed. One such building included a good-sized wooden hotel that also doubled as a stagecoach stop. It was just another town that rose up or expanded after the wars’ end it seemed. But eventually Pickensville went into decline and after some repositioning of the various districts Pickensville transitioned into the present-day city of Easley.

The current Easley Police Jail is located near local landmarks including the Easley Union Baptist Church. Within one and a half miles of the jail are Easley High School, the Richard H. Gettys Middle School and the West End Elementary School.

In 2014 the U.S. Department of Justice issued a warning to Pickens County, which Easley is in, about the existing jail and the need for it to be upgraded. In February of 2017 ground was broken to build a new jail and correction facility. This came about after many years of the prior county councils unable to find a way to fund the new jail and correction facility to replace the old jail. The new jail and correction facility’s funding will be set aside from cash on hand and from expected revenues. This will allow the new facility to be built and avoid the necessity to issue any municipal bonds going forward. The Pickens County Council had a groundbreaking ceremony on February 24, 2017 in Pickens.
