  • A Brief History

    Michael Hester built the store in 1983 and set up the first floor as a general merchandise store and upstairs as a barber shop.

    The store was owned by the Hester family until 1983. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013.

    And in 2021, Hester Store was purchased by Katie Chaney, Anderson South Carolina native to bring it back to its former glory as a general store and bakery.
