The organization bought the new courthouse, which was made possible by the splitting up of the Pendleton District into two, between the Anderson and Pickens counties.
he farmer?s Society Hall marks the legacy of the Pendleton Farmer?s Society. They were formed to improve the local agricultural practices, and mostly to gather the elite and powerful local planters and landowners.
