MISS DENA BLECKLEY'S HOUSE
This is one of the tew houses built within the town's original boundary which still stands. In turn it was occupied by members of a number of prominent Anderson families: Horton, Kennedy, Vandiver, Bleckley. Edward R. Miles, a refugee from Charleston, who for a time was a member of the Confederate Congress, taught school there. Huge boxwoods and trees adorn the gorunds and there is a rose bush 100 years old.
