Hammett Grove

Hammett Grove - This community is located just north of the Pacolet River and off of the Pacolet Cowpens highway. The community is named after Captain Charles B. Hammett. Mr. Hammett had developed a gold mine in the vicinity. Hammett Grove is also located close to the old Native American soapstone quarries. Early in the 1900’s, Hammett Grove was connected to the Bethesda Community by a bridge across the Pacolet River. This bridge was destroyed by a flood. The pier for the bridge is still standing.

. In the 1950’s some of the steel or iron for the bridge could still be seen.
